Hi , 

Could any one of you kindly help me out in the below given . I am new to scripting /coding and I have gone through the Samples on-line  and created one on my own, that I have attached along with this post. so please guide me. Thank you

 

 

 

Script to be written for  

 

1.       Select “Ctrl+Alt+E” or “F2” to run a software

 

2.       Then “alt” key to select menu section

 

3.       Keyboard right arrow key 1 time

 

4.       Keyboard “down” arrow Key 4 times

 

5.       Enter 2 times

6. finally "close" the window. 

 

 

Notes: on the software.

 

The .exe file is “EPMControl.exe “

 

Target: "C:\Program Files\EPM Suite\EPMControl.exe"

 

Tried a short cut key: F2 (since multiple keys did not work)

Try this to see if it opens the .exe

$Path = "C:\Program Files\EPM Suite\EPMControl.exe"
ShellExecute($Path)
