I started this project alone in May 2020 as project in my spare time at work, I'm working for a IT compagny that's 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 (BAT / CMD / VBS) ? 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) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Current progression of the project (more might be added in future)
« Blue = Info || Yellow = Unfinished/Untested || Purple = Could be better || Green = Done ||Red = Not Yet Started »
*** Very early Stage ***
Connect Network Attached Storage(NAS) (Tested & Working - AutoIT only)
Install Adobe Reader DC, 7zip, Google Chrome (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool)
Change OEM Information (Tested & Working - contains both AutoIT version and CMD script)
Disable ScreenSaver (Require testing AutoIT only)
Change Computer Name (Require testing AutoIT only)
Change Default Browser (Work - using 3rd party tool)
Change .pdf / .pdfxml from Edge to Adobe Reader DC (AutoIT only)
Change Edge to Google Chrome as Default Browser (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool)
Windows Updates (Currently working on it - AutoIT only)
Activate Office (Tested on 2010 & Working - CMD Script)
Pin to taskbar Excel, Outlook, Word, Chrome (Tested & Working - using 3rd party tool)
GUI currently featuring the following options
- TreeView to check case of desired tasks
- Redirect ConsoleWrite with timestamp messages in richedit (errors shown in red text)
*** To Do ***
- Read informations needed for tasks like: OEM, ComputerName, NAS user/password etc... from a file
- ListView for Windows Updates
- Probably more

2020.09.21 Update: Since this topic reached over 200+ views without a single interest shown by community, pm me and i'll share with you W10 Configurator script
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.

I think I'm so close to solving an automation problem but need that last bit of help. Anyone familiar with automation might know this answer. The beginning of this code is a nice example from @IanN1990 which I dug into a little and found it's counting my tabs correctly in Chrome. How may I print out each tab name (probably some sort of property in the automation object)
#include "CUIAutomation2.au3" ; Window handle Local $hWindow = WinGetHandle( "[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_1]" ) If Not IsHWnd( $hWindow ) Then Return ConsoleWrite( "$hWindow ERR" & @CRLF ) ConsoleWrite( "$hWindow OK" & @CRLF ) ; Activate window WinActivate( $hWindow ) Sleep( 100 ) ; UI Automation object Local $oUIAutomation = ObjCreateInterface( $sCLSID_CUIAutomation, $sIID_IUIAutomation, $dtagIUIAutomation ) If Not IsObj( $oUIAutomation ) Then Return ConsoleWrite( "$oUIAutomation ERR" & @CRLF ) ConsoleWrite( "$oUIAutomation OK" & @CRLF ) ; Desktop element Local $pDesktop, $oDesktop $oUIAutomation.GetRootElement( $pDesktop ) $oDesktop = ObjCreateInterface( $pDesktop, $sIID_IUIAutomationElement, $dtagIUIAutomationElement ) If Not IsObj( $oDesktop ) Then Return ConsoleWrite( "$oDesktop ERR" & @CRLF ) ConsoleWrite( "$oDesktop OK" & @CRLF ) ; Chrome window Local $pCondition $oUIAutomation.CreatePropertyCondition( $UIA_ClassNamePropertyId, "Chrome_WidgetWin_1", $pCondition ) If Not $pCondition Then Return ConsoleWrite( "$pCondition ERR" & @CRLF ) ConsoleWrite( "$pCondition OK" & @CRLF ) Local $pChrome, $oChrome $oDesktop.FindFirst( $TreeScope_Descendants, $pCondition, $pChrome ) $oChrome = ObjCreateInterface( $pChrome, $sIID_IUIAutomationElement, $dtagIUIAutomationElement ) If Not IsObj( $oChrome ) Then Return ConsoleWrite( "$oChrome ERR" & @CRLF ) ConsoleWrite( "$oChrome OK" & @CRLF ) ; Tab item Local $pCondition1 $oUIAutomation.CreatePropertyCondition( $UIA_ControlTypePropertyId, $UIA_TabItemControlTypeId, $pCondition1 ) If Not $pCondition1 Then Return ConsoleWrite( "$pCondition1 ERR" & @CRLF ) ConsoleWrite( "$pCondition1 OK" & @CRLF ) ;~ Find All tab items Local $pTabs, $oUIElementArray, $iElements, $pFound, $oFound, $value $oChrome.FindAll( $TreeScope_Descendants, $pCondition1, $pTabs ) $oUIElementArray = ObjCreateInterface($pTabs, $sIID_IUIAutomationElementArray, $dtagIUIAutomationElementArray) $oUIElementArray.Length( $iElements ) ConsoleWrite( "$iElements:" & $iElements & @CRLF ) For $i = 0 To $iElements - 1 Local $pFound $oUIElementArray.GetElement($i, $pFound) ConsoleWrite($pFound & @CRLF) $pFound.GetCurrentPropertyValue($UIA_NamePropertyId,$value) ;<==PROBLEM HERE ConsoleWrite($value & @CRLF) Next
Thanks for any direction.
