#410 closed Feature Request (Rejected)

Have installation of Scite editor optional

Keywords: scite editor installation Cc:


I am an UltraEdit and PSPad user and whenever I install AutoIt I have to change the "Edit Script" registry entry to point to either of these two editors.

At a minimum it would be nice to have the installation of Scite as optional. At most, provide a UI for the user to select the filepath for their preferred editor and update the registry entry accordingly.

Redirect the .au3 extension to use a different ProgID (For example, I use "AutoIt3ScriptCustom"). Then the AutoIt installer will still change the "AutoIt3Script" ProgID but since the .au3 extension points to "AutoIt3ScriptCustom" the changes won't be reflected. You can, of course, customize whatever commands you want in your own ProgID. This is basically a one-time customization.

Closing as rejected.
