I recently purchased Intelliremote (a remote control program of sorts) and the author has given it the ability to run AutoIt scripts. I have a script:

IfWinNotActive, Program Manager, , WinActivate, Program Manager,

WinWaitActive, Program Manager,


OK, so this is what I would like it to do:

Enter from the keyboard:


wait some time for media center to load


wait a little

move arrow over twice


Am I even close to what I want or am I just a cotton headed nini muggins?

Please send help.

$active=WinActive("program window title")

If $active=0 Then

Run("path:\exe name")

WinWaitActive("program window title")



WinWait("media center window title")


WinWait(or sleep)

Send("{LEFT 2}{ENTER}")

although controlsend would probably be more accurate. You can get window information with the autoit window info tool.

controlclick on tabs and buttons would cut down on send commands as well. there is also some other command that I can't remember offhand about menus and trees...
