Converting 1-on-1 batch to autoit (directly porting it, so to speak) isn't the correct way to approach this challenge. You'll end up with a bad port, like a game ported from the console to the PC where the instructions still only mention the console buttons.

A better way to go about it would be to start from scratch by writing down a bullet list of what you want your application to do and which interactions with user or system it needs to do, and then try to solve the separate bullets piece by piece by writing autoit code for it. Feel free to ask for more specific help on any subtask, or help with designing your script. That's what people here enjoy helping with much more than just "I have this and I need that" :)

Do it like this, and a- you don't end up with a badly written and chaotic port, and b- you'll learn and enjoy more in the process. What's more, you're much more likely to get useful help on this forum if you go through a "software design phase" publicly :) Good luck!

Ideas for subtasks that are easy to approach as separate challenges and then combine into the main project:

  • write to a logfile
  • execute a system command and capture output
  • execute code in subroutines as a function
  • present a simple choice menu to the user
  • ... etc...
