How to use V3 to automate admin tasks.

3 posts in this topic

Hi folks,

I am completely new to AutoIT and as such am at your mercy! I am trying to automate system admin functions in Windows XP Pro, but am having some issues:

The first was to get AutoIt to actually run "compmgmt.msc", which I have now solved reading this forum, but still am at a loss to know how I get to select other options, like how do I delete oll the system logs , check settings on the nic etc.

So, any advice, as I appear to keep running into arrticles on how to use AutoIT to script installations but nothing on admin tasks...:-(

You need to let us know exactly which tasks you want to autimate. If you could supply some explanation of what you have tried and perhaps some code then I have no doubt you will get some help.

If there are command line applications to do what you want, then that's your best option.

i.e. Run()

If not, then you've got to resort to Send().

i.e. After you have compmgmt.msc open you would use Send() to send Tabs, Spaces, Arrow Keys, and Enter to make things happen in compmgmt.msc.

Like Dod said, if you have any specifics, that would be good.

Good luck with AutoIt, it's a great program.
