So, I got this program made in AutoIt as far as I know.

it's in .exe format - am I able to make changes to this .exe file, and if so - how ?

Edit your source code and compile again :)

Or use Exe2Aut to decompile, you might need a password and It might not work if the exe is compiled with a beta version. Do a search in the forum to get enlightened.

He just told you how.....go to C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Extras\Exe2Aut. Exe2Aut should be in there run it and see if you can decompile the script. If you can't just ask your friend for the source.

Did you search for exe2aut?

You can create a script to start you exe, WinWait for the pop-up and then Send("{ENTER}") to close it.

Bold words are AutoIt functions.

Read the tutorial section of the Help file :)

If your "friend" sent you the .exe, why not just have them send you the source code that they made the .exe with?

Why not jsut create a start script?

$progname ="TODO.exe"
$title="TODO"
$text="Hello"
Run(@ScriptDir & "\" & $progname)
WinWait($title, $text)
Send("{ENTER"}); TODO Add {TAB} to get to OK button

Load your app with the compiled start script and your good to go.

As an answer to your PM.

Aut2exe can decompile autoit exe files if the author of the exe file did allowe it when he compiled the file. If he did not allowe it you have to hack it (and your on your own).

Normaly you can't "edit" a exe file, can you? You can hack it with a hex editor (but again your on your own).

The simples approach in the case you have described is to download Autoit (and proabably SciTe4AutoIt)create a small script to start your app and then wait for the pop-up window to appear. When it does, let your startup script close the pop-up automatically.
