Need some direction..

Recommended Posts


I am fairly new to auto-it and programming in general. I would consider myself a basic programmer.

I would like to interact with a windows application or function behind the scenes instead of calling the application and manipulating the front end.

I have seen object calls like the code below:

$obj = ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!root/default:SystemRestore")
$obj.CreateRestorePoint($discription, 12, 100)
If $disable Then

I have also seen code that uses DLLCall.

For example:

$TCount = DllCall("kernel32.dll", "long", "GetTickCount")

How do i know what is in each DLL, and How do I learn to format my requests in a way that makes it work correctly.

I really need some direction on how to find out more about these areas in detail!.

I would greatly appreciate someone pointing me in the right direction.

Most information I can find is elusive at best, and doesn't explain the details behind scenes.

Thanks for everyone's help in advance.
