Variable used without being declared error message

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -


Need a little help with an error message that pops up every time I try to perform an action.

Below is a screen shot of the error message?

AutoIt Error

Line 1583 (File “C:Program FilesRainmeterAddonsMakeStallerMakeStaller.exe”):

Error: Variable used without being declared.


I had to recently update my AutoIt which I had done successfully on my Windows 7 PC.

I had downloaded the latest version from

I had written a new script, which I tried to compile and I get the above error message.

This has never happened before I upgraded the software.

After this update, any script I compile comes up with the same error.

For testing purposes I tried to compile an older script, which I had done before and still it comes up with the same error message.

Does anyone have any idea why this error message pops up?

It is a purely programming error and due to the reason that the program is using some variables, which are not declared it means that the program is not fully written and that's why it is giving this error. You can uninstall the version of the program you just installed to solve this problem.

If you are working on a project, in this program then find any bugs and errors in your program and make it error free. It will solve your problem and this message will not pop up next time.

In programming languages, a variable is a kind of data that needs to be changed over time and the message says that you have not declared this type of data and you are using the data without declaring it. So it can solved by first declaring the data type and then the data.

I think now you have enough knowledge to solve your problem. It the problem remains, with change in your program then you can install a fresh copy of that program to solve this problem which is valid and up to date.

I’m not sure if you understand the purpose of using the version you have and I think it’s what’s causing the problem.

Beta versions can’t be considered the latest version although it is really the latest version.

Beta versions are indeed the latest version but unofficially.

The beta stage of the program is the testing period where the developer allows its users to download and install it and then report back any bug or problems they have encountered with the program.

They usually set a certain period for the beta version before releasing it as the official version.

Beta versions are unstable versions and can’t be relied on its correctness. And since you are using the beta version I think the errors you see are the bugs of the program.

You will fix this problem if you will download the official and stable release of AutoIt from AutoIt Downloads.

Avoid using any beta versions unless you want to contribute on testing the product. In addition, you may contribute on the development of the application by sending the errors you encounter if the site allows it.
