AutoIT and Linux (Wine)

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if the devs behind AutoIT have something like this planned, but to be able to run autoit apps on Linux would be amazing. 

Maybe there is something already done and I do not know ...

IAHIM,

Edit: Sorry, I see you mentioned Wine. Apparently you can run AutoIt under Wine, although some of the functions do not work correctly. Certainly there is no intention of changing anything in AutoIt to make it more compatible - development time is, as you have I hope now noticed, hard enough to come by for the main package.

Thank you M23. I was out for some years, but i have missed AutoIT. Getting slowly back in the game. 
Keep up the good work.

Mike25de,

Always a pleasure to see old members come back. You are arriving at an interesting time with the new release not too far off (we hope)!

I have run several AutoIt scripts under wine successfully, it works pretty well. As for AutoIt natively running in Linux, it is pretty much impossible as M23 has pointed out... however, I am planning to start work on a cross-platform port of the AutoIt language, and Linux is the primary target of that project. You can see the thread (link in my signature) that I started a year ago where I discuss it. I hope to start work soon and you may see some results in the coming months.

If I have hurt or offended you in anyway, Please accept my apologies, I never (regardless of the situation) intend to do that to anybody.
