First, welcome to the AutoIt forums. ;)

To do what you want is very easy - it is what AutoIt was designed to do. So once you have an idea of how AutoIt works, you will have no trouble coding a script to click on your button - and you will be able to do a whole lot more as well. :idea:

Start by reading the Help file (at least the first few sections - Using AutoIt, Tutorials and the first couple of References), this will help you enormously. You should also look at the excellent tutorials that you will find here and here. There are even video tutorials on YouTube if you prefer watching to reading.

I know you want to start coding NOW, but a little study will save you a lot of trouble later on, believe me. :evil:

Once you have a fair grasp on how AutoIt works, look carefully at the ControlClick function - this is the most commonly used way to interact with buttons in other applications.

You know where we are if you need help. :evil:
