After some research, I've discovered that the portable version of AHK is missing AU3_Spy.exe, which seems to be required for Window Spy to run.

  • There I can no longer find the au3-spy exe file, probable the developers changed it. please update answer.
  • @T.Todua The script WindowSpy.ahk replaces AU3_Spy.exe in the installer now. You may need to install AutoHotKey before you can run the script.
  • I am using a work laptop which does not have installation permissions.
  • Maybe install it on another machine and copy the AU3_Spy.exe over using a flash drive
