Hello! I connect via VMware to Windows server and I run applications there, can AutoIt installed in the local pc, work in these applications? Or they have to be installed locally in the server I connect to?

Thanks!

Just compile your script on the local machine and you can run it remotely or on the local machine without installing AutoIt, I hope that's what you were referring to.

It depends, @usser. Much like your last topic, you're not giving a lot of specifics around what you are trying to do. If you're connecting to the server through the vSphere console and want to run a script that interacts with a window through sends/control commands, then yes, having the script compiled and on the server is going to be easiest. If you're running a script against the machine through remote registry, WMI, powershell, etc., then your script can live on any machine that has connectivity to the server. Unfortunately, without details on exactly what you are trying to do beyond "run applications", it is difficult to offer more assistance.

PowerCLI is great too...if you only need to modify things that can be done through the vSphere functions (which is a lot).

@jdelaney one of these days I am going to sit down and devote the time to a native UDF for PowerCLI, would be such a great addition.
