#3672 closed Bug (Fixed)

AutoIt v3 Installer overwrites PowerShell Envirovment Path

Reported by: MadBoy Owned by: Jos
Milestone: Component: Other
Version: 3.3.14.0 Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:

Description

I've just installed the newest version of AutoIt v3. It removed the old version, installed the latest version in its place. While that worked fine, I noticed that my PowerShell Modules stopped working.

$CurrentValue = [Environment]::GetEnvironmentVariable("PSModulePath", "Machine")
$CurrentValue -split ';'

Confirms this issue. There's only AutoIt module path. I've written short blog post about it: https://evotec.xyz/powershell-environment-path-is-missing-or-overwritten/

This was fixed in version v3.3.13.14, so when upgrading from any version before v3.3.13.14, you can still have this issue as the uninstall is done by the old version installer.
I will close this for now and report if this issue occurs with uninstall of any version eq or gt v3.3.13.14.
