AutoIt on Raspberry Pi 2 ?

7 posts in this topic

So,

The raspberry pi 2 is more or less available now and Microsoft has announced Windows 10 for the RasPi 2 (see here).

So, is there a possibility that AutoIt may be available for the Raspberry Pi 2?

Would you like to see AutoIt working on a RasPi? What's your thought on that?

Just asking out of curiosity.

I for myself will probably end up learning Python more to automatize stuff if AutoIt won't be available. (So far I made a script to automatically synchronize two folders, one being on a NAS). But this announcement made me think :)

Others here will give you a better answer, but in short, AutoIt is designed for and runs on Windows.

If a normal standard version of Windows will run on the Rasberry, then AutoIt probably will too.

There are one or more topics here somewhere, that tell you about the futility of wanting or hoping for AutoIt to run on any other OS, that should give you all the answers you need.

Since the Raspberry Pi 2 uses an ARMv7 CPU, I don't think it will be able to run AutoIt or any other x86 applications in Windows 10 for Raspberry Pi.

Im expecting Windows 10 for "The Internet of Things" will be more like a command prompt enviroment, emulating the Arduino.

But then, M$ haven't released any info yet, so lets see...

This topic was not intended to be 'Does AutoIt run on XYZ OS?', but rather building up some hype for RasPi 2 and how much people would like too see AutoIt running on that.

I thought so too :/ But from what I know about AutoIt and it having Windows as a requirement, it just made me so happy that there might be a possibility. Maybe with a kit that de-/encodes the code hardwarewise and translates it to a fitting language  :P But then it would be easier to just invent a similar language that runs on those CPUs :D

My reply was aimed at deterring you from bothering with that notion ... especially the second paragraph, which if you had investigated, would have answered all.
