editor's review

People who have difficulty with scripting language that is to be used in designing the best automated Windows GUI will find the software AutoIt as best solution. This is the freeware that is similar to the BASIC like language and helps you in easy construction of the code and will let you do magic with the combination of various simulated keystrokes. Also the mouse movement and the window control manipulation would fetch you in saving the time that is used for automating the tasks that are not possible with the other languages that are popular in the software market.

This is very small and self contained that will help you run on the various versions of the Windows without you suffering from any annoying run time issues. You can also support complex expressions along with supporting the user functions and various loops that are required for developing even a small application. It also has the power to manipulate the windows and other processes that will help you do something more interesting and challenging with very less effort. You can easily interest with the standard controls related to windows and can also facilitate the developers to compile the scripts as standalone executables. So imagine how you are going to benefit from it the moment you start using it on your personal computer.

windows default iconAutoIt Publisher's description

AutoIt is a freeware Windows automation language. It can be used to script most simple Windows-based tasks (great for PC rollouts or home automation).

AutoIt v3 is a freeware BASIC-like scripting language designed for automating the Windows GUI and general scripting. It uses a combination of simulated keystrokes, mouse movement and window/control manipulation in order to automate tasks in a way not possible or reliable with other languages (e.g. VBScript and SendKeys). AutoIt is also very small, self-contained and will run on all versions of Windows out-of-the-box with no annoying “runtimes” required!

AutoIt was initially designed for PC “roll out” situations to reliably automate and configure thousands of PCs. Over time it has become a powerful language that supports complex expressions, user functions, loops and everything else that veteran scripters would expect.
