Usually there are unattended installers available. Which program do you want to install?

With Autoit installed on your Win Box, you will find a tool named "Autoit Window Info (x86)" using the start button.

With the help of this tool you can figure out the

  • Window Title
  • Window Text
  • Control ID of the button, you want to click.

Please read the help file for "ControlClick()", the rest should be quite easy going.


Especially Java Program's GUI can't be analysed by "Autoit Window Info", then you might want try to click window relative coordinates, to "hit" the buttons you need. Or send "Hotkeys" (ALT+n for next e.g. is quite common).
