need help on autoIT install software on windows

5 posts in this topic

hi all

im very new to AutoIT. a few questions

1. i know a bit python, is it possible to use python to do scripting and put out EXE file. i think there is somthing call autoitX

2. i try to auto run a few setup, in the small office

one software called PDF SAM, i have try to capture via autoit recorder.

however in its last 2nd step after the install all the files. i think the it hit the ALT+ N too quickly before it appears.

therefore i got stuck on the next window and once i click on "next". Autoit will auto click on finish for me

any ideas?

thanks

PDF SAM includes a silent install option, although it is not completely silent.

Run(@comspec & "/c c:pathtoinstallersetup.exe /S")
_WinWaitActivate("Installer Language","Please select the la")
Send("{ENTER}")
