AutoIt Download and Installation


Author Post Date Thursday, 28 January 2016
   
All the AutoIt downloads are available at their Downloads page and we are interested in AutoIt Full Installation installer and AutoIt SciTE Script Editor. Also there is a self extracting archive (Download Zip option) which we do not use; but the installer.
AutoIt full installation contains both x86 and x64 components, AutoIt program files and help, Script to EXE converter, AutoItX (DLL/ COM control) and AutoIt Editor (A cut down version of the SciTE script editor). We will install the full AutoIt SciTE editor package to get a lot of interesting additional AutoIt tools. I will cover the details of each tool in a separate post. We will move to installation now.

Download Installers

  1. Download both AutoIt installer and AutoIt Script Editor

AutoIt Installation

  1. Run AutoIt installer - autoit-v3-setup.exe
  2. Confirm it, if it asks the message "Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?"
  3. Click "Next" button in welcome screen.
  4. Read the License Agreement and click "I Agree" to to continue with the installation.
  5. If the OS is 64 bit, it will ask for the x64 support configuration. We can select the recommended "Use x86 tools by default" option for compatibility.
  6. Next option is what should be the behavior when we double click a *.au3 file - Run or Edit. For easiness, we can select "Edit the script" option.
  7. Keep all the components selected by default in "Choose Components" window.
  8. Select the installation destination folder. There should not be any change most probably. Clicking the Install button will immediately start the installation.

  9. Setup will display completion window as shown below. Click Finish to close the window and we have completed the AutoIt installation!!!

AutoIt Script Editor Installation

  1. Run script editor installer - SciTE4AutoIt3.exe.
  2. Confirm it, if the OS asks for any messages on publisher or computer changes.
  3. Click "Next" button in welcome screen.
  4. Read the License Agreement and click "I Agree" to to continue with the installation. This will immediately start the installation.
  5. Setup will display completion window as shown below. Click "Finish" to close the window and we have completed the AutoIt Script Editor installation!!!
