AutoIt for CloudFormation Deployment at Amazon Web Services

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm trying to use AutoIt to deploy an application on Amazon Web Services using their CloudFormation deployment technology. Has anyone done anything similar? My script uses the WinWaitActive commands so after reading the FAQs, I can see that this would be a problem. I can change the script as per the FAQ but was just curious as to whether or not anyone else had any experiences deploying AutoIt scripts with CloudFormation. Thanks.

Can you provide more specific details? You should detail what the process involves and what the result is, that way people will know what you are trying to do and be able to help you most likely.

Essentially, the AWS CloudFormation performs the following:

1. AWS creates a new Windows 2008 R2 server server.

2. A set of commands is sent to the server. The commands are as follows:

- The server is configured for our internal DNS

- The server is renamed

- An antivirus software is installed

- The AutoIt compiled command is run.

The program times out and the log shows that it is processing the AutoIt script when it times out. There are no other errors.
