#3801 closed Bug (Wont Fix)

AutoIt #include does not handle symlinks right if included file has #include-once

Reported by: genius257 Owned by:

It would be nice if AutoIt used something like GetFinalPathNameByHandleA, for checking if included files using #include-once was already included.

I've attached a Tar file for reproducing the Issue. Administrative rights are needed to unpack the file.

Sorry to close this ticket as this function is only available starting Vista/Server 2008.
We still want AutoIt to be used with Windows 7 ...

Vista is older than Windows 7. I assume you meant Windows XP?

The lowest Windows version the current AutoIt3 version supports is Windows XP.

It is true that GetFinalPathNameByHandleA is not supported in Windows XP, however there is a way to get the same result on Windows XP:

A simpler solution is to use the unique file identifier via GetFileInformationByHandle.
It is Available in Windows XP.
