Hi everyone, I'm new to this, I have a couple of questions:
When I automate the apps and interrupt the installation (by clicking on the desktop) the installation stops. Is that normal?
My other problem is to finish an app, for example I was creating an automation with apmstudio trial, but when I get to the end I can't give it or it doesn't finish the box and it stays. Could you help me understand that part.

WinWaitActive("AutoPlay Media Studio 8 Trial Setup")
WinActivate("AutoPlay Media Studio 8 Trial Setup")
 Send("{ENTER}")                                                                ; paso 13

WinWaitActive("AutoPlay Media Studio 8 Trial Setup")
WinActivate("AutoPlay Media Studio 8 Trial Setup")
Send("{ENTER}")                                                                 ; paso 14

WinWaitActive("AutoPlay Media Studio 8 Trial Setup")
WinActivate("AutoPlay Media Studio 8 Trial Setup", "")                 ; " " there is no text to place
Send("{Enter}")           ; no  finish

I guess it depends on what you mean by normal. ;)

Yes, I would expect it to be interrupted if you are relying on Send() and/or MouseClick() functions. 

Check out the ControlSend() and ControlClick() functions instead if you are hoping to automate something, and continue using the computer while the script runs.

You may also look into whether or not the installer supports a silent install.  That is arguably the best way to perform an install and have it run in the background, if the installer supports it.

Looking at the example you posted, it looks like the logic may not be accomplishing what you think it should, they way you think it should.

WinWaitActive pauses until the window becomes active.  If it never becomes active (by user intervention or own its own), the script will not continue. 

Perhaps WinWait is what you need instead?
