I'm new to AutoIt. Is X a dumbed down version?

I just learned about AutoIt from a coworker. I want to learn it and make use of it when and where possible.

I decided to play around and reference the AutoItX3 library in MS Access VBA.

So far, the only commands that work are .send and .sleep.

Calls to other functions just will not work,
https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions.htm

I get messages like "Object Doesnt Support this property or method"

So I assume it's the object. A dumbed down version... Though, it's so dumbed down, the .Sleep method is the only thing it offers, since VBA has no sleep method.

 

Dim oAutoIt
Set oAutoIt = CreateObject("AutoItX3.Control")

I also set the checkbook in references.

At least you can compile AutoIt and call it
Shell "path/program.exe"

When you check the directory where Autoit is installed you'll find file AutoItX.chm in subdir AutoItX.
The help file describes what works in AutoItX.

Thank You.

I think I'll just use the script editor and build and run external scrips for best outcomes.
