I started this project alone in May 2020 as project in my spare time at work, I'm working for a IT company that started opening their services to residential customers few months ago and now my position in the company kinda drifted in the doom and gloom world of repetitive tasks like: Reinstallation of Windows 10.
The procedure is very repetitive and I started feeling like being a robot which is the main reason I started this project.
1. Q: Do you want this project to be accomplished with the usage of AutoIT ONLY or 3rd party tools / Scripts (BATCH / POWERSHELL / VB) ? A: No, if I cannot find a way using AutoIT to accomplish a task I will move to my Plan B which consist of automating an 3rd party tool to accomplish the affected task until a solution is found. 2. Q: What do I get from helping/collaborating in this project? A: I will personally take the responsability to mention you in the credits of this project. 3. Q: If I have more questions, can I ask? A: Certainly! feel free to ask any questions related to this project! 4. Q: What is the main goal of this project? A: Automating Windows 10 configuration without user interaction needed (as much as possible) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

version 1.2 - Jan 2, 2021
Today, I present to you a new version of Software Installer. This script is designed to be used on CDs/DVDs/USB drives where you put software in a folder (called Software) and you can select multiple software and it will automate installing your selected software one after another with little to no interaction. To do this, you simply need to configure each software with a silent switch (most software have one or more). You can put your software in categories to organize them on the main GUI.
The major new things concerning this project:
Added a Detect button, where the software tries to detect what kind of installer is used, saving you from having to find out on your own. It's not perfect, but it detects many common installer types. Added a Installers.db file for installers that were not created by the most common methods (Inno Setup, NSIS, etc). I will continue to add to this file. If you have any that you find that you would like to contribute, please PM. I would very much appreciate your help. This version searches for all subfolders now and shows .exe and .msi files that you may not want to see on the main screen. Therefore, I have added the option to "Hide This Item On Main GUI". Added the ability to install up to 2 software before and up to 2 software or registry entries after installing your selected software. This will allow you to install things like service packs, DotNet, etc. (prerequisites). And it will allow you to apply your licensing information through registry entries or patches/updates. If you want the full package (source code, compiled .exe (both 32/64 bit), changelog, installers.db, icon, etc.), you can download it here:
I have a lifetime account at FileFactory, so the link should never die and you do NOT need an account or pay them money to download. Simply choose the free/slow download option. The file is small and will still download fairly quickly. If you have trouble downloading it, PM me. I have the previous versions of this script, but they are inferior to this version, so if you want the older versions, PM me and I will provide them.
If you just want the bare minimum, the script, installers.db and changelog are attached on this forum below.

I have a set of excel docs 1& 2
1) In Excel 1 i have a fixed column called dimensionId that contains list of dimensionid's with in between empty cells.
Here, For each dimesionId, i need to check corresponding columns of L,M,N ,O(senior, mid, junior, student) & check If they contain letter Y (Open excel 2) and if empty ignore,check next.
I need to loop through the entire column of dimensionId one by one, please help me proceed with the logic.
2) If letter Y exists, open excel 2 and check if same dimesionId exists in column A.
New to autoit excel automation, Help me with logic to execute this.
Global $oExcel = _Excel_Open()
Global $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, "D:\yta\Trial concept dimensions list.xlsx")
Local $read1 = _Excel_RangeRead ($oWorkbook,Default,"C3")
Attached exce 1 doc.
This is pretty useful to me at least, I hope to others. Whenever you need to poke a button or such on a GUI, you can just make calls to this UDF and instruct it how long to wait, 0 is forever, anyway, let the code to the explaining. Feel free to help expand this UDF. I plan to create new ones as I go along that support all the Win32 and .NET Controls. Ultimately, I would like to be able to fully control any type of control, this works well with most. Just an example of what you can do.
