Problem with WHEN for Javascript/NOATVAR fixed, the name of the when
needs to be in quotes, but the other options do not:

    when "test" always after 450 {

Added the -= and += operators, very useful for Javascript style FOR loops.

 for n from 1 to 10 step 2
 for(n=1; n<=10; n+=2)

DELETE command added, a synonym for FREE.
Big difference is in NOATVAR mode, the value passed is not treated as
a variable:

  local fred array(5,6)
  free fred
  var fred = array(5,6);
  delete fred;     // same as free("fred");

GOTO now works in when NOATVAR is enabled (previously it would try to treat the
label as a variable).

scripts only.

to, John Bridges

I have a little in-house project that I wanted to use AfterGrasp for (it needs to write JPG files) but had not had it installed since I transitioned to Windows 7 (32 bit on this machine).

When I tried to install the latest build (and an old one as well), I get the dreaded 'Error in registry' message when attempting to run AGEdit.

I researched old message (I have them all) and found the exchange below.  Making the registry entries didn't change the results. You probably haven't had to deal with anyone installing for awhile, so maybe you're still at a loss, but I thought I would check in with you anyway.

I think I have it solved.

Using the magic of VMWARE to have a clean copy of XP that reverts back
to clean evertime I start it, and REGMON to watch what registry entry
AGEDIT is looking at when it give the error message I've figured out
what two registry entries AGEDIT wants.

If you open this REG file on your machine (adding it's entries to your
registry), it should suddenly work for you. I've tested this on a
completely clean machine (virtual machine) that has XP and fixes on
it, no other software.

If it works for everyone, I'll modify the installer to create these
registry keys.

(This REG is a text file, you can read it yourself with any text
editor. Here is what is says)

to Dick Trump,
I haven't used AGEdit in a long time.

I usually use the old GLPRO editor (which does work fine with AfterGRASP although the syntax highlighting is wrong), or more often I use Visual Studio since it's a better all around editor.

All I can think of is to delete all the registry entries for AGEDIT, and then re-install.

Thanks, John.

I did that already. Didn't work. I'll just use UltraEdit, my old
standby text editor. I already have the script doing the image
manipulation and saving I want. Now I just need to write the code to
have it watch for new files as they arrive in an FTP folder on our
server (1 per minute). I think I can do that fairly easily.
