Can't start AutoGUI

Attached images are: Error upon startup of AutoGUI.ahk and shot of the line referenced.
I edited the line as best I could and it was accepted, but then another error came up. Once more and another error. My nubie knowledge of AHK scripting was overwhelmed and I gave up. It appears that there is a problem with the versions of AHK or AGUI but I don't know for sure.

I'd really like to try AGUI. What can I do to get it running?

AutoGUI is for AHK v1 (notice the number 1.1.30 on the top bar of the forum). The minimum requirement is AHK 1.1.23 or higher, but that doesn't include AHK v2.

Thanks! I did finally notice that and found a blog https://jacksautohotkeyblog.wordpress.c ... rsion-2-0/ by Jack Dunning, who authored a neat little script called "EggTimer.ahk. The script comes in Version 1 and 2. I assumed that V. 2 was a normal upgrade and installed it by copying the .exe file to my AHK directory. Turned out to be much more that a simple upgrade; a great many changes.

I'm now in the process of restoring V1 and following Jack's instructions for running 1 and 2 on the same computer. (Involves creating a new extension, "*.ahk2".
