The -x -r flags in upx don't seem to exist and cause the compression step to fail in Ahk2Exe (perhaps these were for mpress). From the mpress documentation -r is 'do not compress resources' and -x is 'do not manage exceptions (64 bit PE32+)'.
The equivalent seems of -r seems to be -compress-resources=0, but you might want to double check that since I don't understand the purpose of this.

Would it be possible to add the --best flag as well? --best reduces the exe size by about 20% for simple compiled scripts.

To not create another thread just to ask this question, do you have plans to move your ahk2exe to make it compatible with your 2.080 release?HotKeyIt wrote:I have changed it to use mpress.
-r is required when compression is used as otherwise it can't extract script as far as I remember.
