AutoIt vs. PowerShell

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I know that this is an AutoIt forum and that everyone here loves AutoIt (as I do). But, I was hoping that some of you whom might have experience with PowerShell could provide me with a more objective comparison as to whether it makes more sense to use AutoIt or PowerShell as my primary "wrapper" for driving all of the software deployments within my company. Currently, I'm using VBScript for my "wrapper" template, but I'm seriously thinking about switching to either AutoIt or PowerShell.

Which one should I use and why?

You could use both. Call PowerShell from AutoIt.

Why:

AutoIt is easy to learn. Moving from VBScript to AutoIt shouldn't be a problem.

Powershell is powerfull. Some things that can't be done with AutoIt can be done using PS.

with aut2exe you can create an encrypted executable script embedding everything you need, and than execute them everywhere (on every NT version ) without installing bloaded components ...

have you never tried to do this with vbscript or with powershell ?

Thanks, water! You make some great points - using AutoIt as my primary foundation or "wrapper" I have GUI functions AND I can use PowerShell from within AutoIt (even adding a GUI for PowerShell functionality)! The best of both worlds!

Does anyone else have any suggestions/input?

Just an observation.

I run PS from Autoit by directly calling powershell.exe to create an Exchange mailbox. It runs forever (about 30 seconds) and uses a huge amount of storage (about 160 MB).

So I use PS only if I can't avoid it.

I use AutoIt for the majority of my tasks.

I recently began using Powershell as its far easier/safer to accomplish Active Directory tasks in Powershell than in Autoit though.

Did you have a look at my AD UDF? I'm sure it is faster and easier than PS.

What do you think makes PS safer than AutoIt regarding AD?

No offence but I would just much rather use Powershell as it has been designed by Microsoft with an aim to make windows server based tasks easier.

The AD Cmdlets are so easy to work with it makes automating tasks a breeze

It is a personal choice, to be sure, scubar. I see AutoIt the same way - it has been designed to work with the Windows API, and to make tasks easier (not only server tasks). And from my personal use of the AD Cmdlets, I have only found one task out of literally hundreds of scripts that I could not do more easily in AutoIt. It's all about your experiences with a language, I guess :)

No offence taken :)

If you feel better using PS to interact with AD, fine. The AD UDF was started when there was no Powershell available.

As JLogan3o13 said: It is a personal choice.

Mostly true, except for the "encrypted" part; the security (integrity) of a complied script has been discussed time and time again on this forum.

I didn't want to leave that (as slight as it may seem) hanging out there.  It could be ill or un-informed info, but I don't want other un-informed users to adopt it.

The ultimate lesson here is, don't script something you aren't willing to risk being seen by prying eyes (such as sensitive names, sites and credentials).

Sorry for the rant.

Anyways, both PowerShell and AutoIt are great.  I mostly have AutoIt experience and it has worked well for me.

I have also heard (and experienced some) of the slowness of PowerShell. Just another good reason to go with AutoIt.

I have decided to go ahead an migrate my template from VBScript to AutoIt.

I want to thank everyone for their input!

Despite what new members may think--specifically one's who want something for nothing or clearly disregard the rules--this forum is a great resource/community for learning; so please don't hesitate to ask for help when needed.

Thank you, spudw2k. And, I agree with you - this community has already helped me and if I'm going to be using AutoIt even more than I have in the past, I fully expect to be here in the forums more often.  :rolleyes:

Adnan,

do you really think this helps the OP? Would be better posted in the Chat section.

I do not know about powershell. But i must say one thing "autoit is an easiest tool in programming". 

 

Adnan, every time you start spamming threads with these irrelevant posts you get warned by a Mod. How long before you actually learn?

Back on topic - the other big difference in my mind is GUI goodness in AutoIt. I much prefer building a GUI in AutoIt (despite the limitation in the look and feel of windows) rather than a wpf app in PowerShell.

      Morning, I am having trouble moving emails to a folder under another account's inbox. 
      Here is the code I have tried so far. 
       
      ; Access the Need Human folder under HELPDESK email account Local $nhFolder = _OL_FolderAccess($oOutlook, "helpdesk@hotmail.com\Inbox\Need Human") If @error <> 0 Then Exit MsgBox(16, "GC_WO_BOT:", "Error accessing folder 'helpdesk@hotmail.com\Inbox\Need Human'. @error = " & @error & " at line: " & @ScriptLineNumber) ;_ArrayDisplay($nhFolder, "Folder Access") ;MsgBox("", "email", $aItems[1][0]) ; Move the E-mails _OL_ItemMove($oOutlook, $aItems[1][0], Default, $nhFolder[5], "Need Human") If @error <> 0 Then Exit MsgBox(16, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemMove", "Error moving specified Email. @error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended & " at line: " & @ScriptLineNumber) ConsoleWrite("The current email " & $aItems[1][0] & "was just moved to: " & $nhFolder[1] & @CRLF) I get error moving specified email @error = 1, @extended = 1

      @water I am getting this error for the first time ever. I have run my code well over 60 times and I'm a bit confused as to why I am sometimes getting this error now. 
      Here is the code and the error message that popped up:
      $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, "*\Outlook-UDF-Test", $olMail, "[UnRead]=True", "", "", "EntryID,Subject", "", 1) If Not IsArray($aItems) Then Exit MsgBox(48, "", "@error = " & @error & ", @extended: " & @extended & " at line: " & @ScriptLineNumber) @error = 0, @extended: 0 at line 317
      I tried looking in the OutLookEX UDF and there is no explanation of error 0
      This is what the UDF says about "_OL_ItemFind"
      Success: One based two-dimensional array with the properties specified by $sReturnProperties Failure: Returns "" and sets @error: 1 - You have to specifiy $sSearchName AND $sSearchValue or none of them 2 - $sWarningClick not found 3 - Error accessing the specified folder. See @extended for errorcode returned by _OL_FolderAccess 4 - Error accessing specified property. @extended is set to the COM error 5 - Error filtering items. @extended is set to the COM error 1nmm - Error checking the $sReturnProperties as returned by __OL_CheckProperties. n is either 0 (property does not exist) or 1 (Property has invalid case) mm is the index of the property in error (one based) As always any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Guys,
      I am trying to convert a python script to AutoIT, but it is not returning any data.

      My aim is to eventually have a script which sends me an email whenever a goal is scored in the English Premiership.
      Is there any guru who can have a quick look over the below script and see if there are any obvious errors?
      To use a football analogy, I think that I have hit the bar a couple of times, but not yet found the back of the net! 
      #cs ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- PYTHON CODE: import requests import json endpoint = "https://api.betfair.com/exchange/betting/rest/v1.0/" header = { 'X-Application' : 'APP_KEY_HERE', 'X-Authentication' : 'SESSION_TOKEN_HERE' ,'content-type' : 'application/json' } json_req='{"filter":{ }}' url = endpoint + "listEventTypes/" response = requests.post(url, data=json_req, headers=header) print json.dumps(json.loads(response.text), indent=3) #ce ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- #include <WinHttp.au3> Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1) Opt("TrayIconDebug", 1) Global $sAddress = 'https://api.betfair.com/exchange/betting/json-rpc/v1/' Global $sPostData = 'https://api.betfair.com/exchange/betting/json-rpc/v1/listEventTypes/' Global $sAppKey = '4YpsEhdsgtedjd' Global $sSession_key = 'BhKl7Ijdu4E3pzHhKu7K5fQrvzf9p3wq/diRMt7bZka7' Global $sjson_req = '{"filter":{ }}' Global $hOpen = _WinHttpOpen() ; Get Session handle ; ##### CHECKED AND VALID HANDLE IS RETURNED ##### Global $hConnect = _WinHttpConnect($hOpen, $sAddress) ; Get connection handle ; ##### CHECKED AND VALID HANDLE IS RETURNED ##### Global $hRequest = _WinHttpOpenRequest($hConnect, 'POST') ; Make a request ; ##### CHECKED AND VALID HANDLE IS RETURNED ##### ; Add header fields to the request _WinHttpAddRequestHeaders($hRequest, 'X-Application: ' & $sAppKey) _WinHttpAddRequestHeaders($hRequest, 'X-Authentication: ' & $sSession_key) _WinHttpAddRequestHeaders($hRequest, 'Accept: application/json') _WinHttpAddRequestHeaders($hRequest, 'Content-Type: application/json') _WinHttpSendRequest($sPostData, 'Data=' & $sjson_req, $hRequest) ; Send it _WinHttpReceiveResponse($hRequest) ; Wait for the response ; Check if there is a response Global $sHeader, $sReturned If _WinHttpQueryDataAvailable($hRequest) Then $sHeader = _WinHttpQueryHeaders($hRequest) MsgBox(64, 'Header', $sHeader) Do $sReturned &= _WinHttpReadData($hRequest) Until @error ConsoleWrite($sReturned) ; Print returned Else ConsoleWriteError('!No data available.' & @CRLF) MsgBox(48, 'Failure', 'No data available.') ;##### <==== ALWAYS FAILS HERE! ##### EndIf ; Close handles _WinHttpCloseHandle($hRequest) _WinHttpCloseHandle($hConnect) _WinHttpCloseHandle($hOpen) I am sure that I have probably missed out a vital line, but for the life of me I can't see the wood for the trees anymore.
      Anyone got any suggestions?
      Many thanks,
      Pete

      Hi I want it to search for a specific color in certain area then excute the loop which presses ESC button and stop the loop when the color no longer present in that specific area.  Here is the example of my code. But it doesnt stop when color is disappeared.
       
      Pixelsearch(511, 455, 678, 501, 0xFFFFFF)
      If Not  @Error Then
      While 1
      Sleep(1000)
      Send("{ESC}")
      Pixelsearch(511, 455, 678, 501, 0xFFFFFF)
      If @Error Then Exitloop
