Windows PE is not Windows, the fact that it works at all on Windows PE is a good thing, that things don't work with Windows PE is not at all surprising. After 3.3.12.x AutoIt was compiled to work with XP SP3 and above, so it's probably something related to that change causing the issue.

I confirm this exception on two computer. Autoit 3.3.12 works fine, throws this exception

  • Resolution set to Wont Fix
  • Status changed from new to closed

As AutoIt does noes really support Win_PE This will not be fix.
The change perhaps occurred with the removing support of Windows_XP
