Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

To automate Internet Explorer I suggest you have a look at the IE UDF that comes with AutoIt.

As far as I know there is no tutorial available on how to use the IE UDF.
Best thing is to have a look at the examples in the AutoIt help file for the IE* functions.
Start with _IECreate. All other functions you'll need then depend on what you want to do with the web site.

Looks to me like the explorer you are trying to automate is embedded in another application.

Actually, its a downloader..  when the exe has been execute, it will automatically download a file from its server.. all i wanted to automate is  "next" 1 c;ocl next. (EULA). so i tried studying autoit automation tutorials..

There are numerous way of getting a handle to the window, including finding child windows of the window that owns it and identifying controls on it and such.

Seems like a bit of effort just for a window handle so I'd wait to see if someone has a simple solution.
