Good morning @VivekDev, and welcome to the AutoIt forum :)
What approach are you trying to do? Post some code you are working on :)

    By my knowledge, I can help someone else, and "that someone" could help in turn another, and so on.

can’t use standard autoit on Xaml forms apps. IUIAutomation is your best bet

and why can’t you just use the command line to build. automating anything other than builds doesn't make much sense. that can all be done using devenv.exe command line or MSBUILD
