Aut2Exe fails when run from SciTE

Reported by: fam_sera@… Owned by: Jos
Milestone: Component: SciTE4AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Aut2Exe, SciTe, tmp.exe Cc:


I'm trying to compile a script from SciTE (v 3.66) by [Ctrl]+F7 on a Win10/64bit PC and get a strange error message, saying:
Aut2Exe Error:
Error: Unable to add resources:
C:\Users\Me\Appdata\Local\AutoIt v3\Aut2Exe\autF263.tmp.exe

So far this is similar to the issue reported under: 2936.

However when I then use the Explorer interface, contex menu entry: Compile script (x64) or Compile Script (x86) in the Windows Explorer, the compilation works OK. What is wrong with the compiler when called from SciTE? I haven't seen that behaviour in the past.
Thank you and best regards,
Zsolt Sera

I think I'm about to figure out the cause. It's Windows 10 - UAC. When calling the compiler from SciTe, I do not get the needed level of security to be able to write to the folder. (I do not think SciTe is executed with aministrative rights, or shold be!) Really strange is that the file is still written to the folder, thus only the compiler thinks I do not have the access.

This is very likely an AV program locking the temp file while the compiler is trying to add the file to the PE header. Try adding the temp folder C:\Users\Me\Appdata\Local\AutoIt v3\Aut2Exe\ to the whitelist of your AV program. Please come to the forum in case the issue continues as that is the place to solve issues like this.
Closin the report as nobug.
