Has anyone figured this out?

I too would like to do this and speaking from a newbie 's prospective, taking the leap from reading the help files to figuring out how to write a script that plays a specific playlist in iTunes is not easy.

Any help would be appreciated.

Look at the iTunes COM sdk.

Reminder - major newbie -

I did a search on "iTunes COM sdk" and the results all seemed related, but nothing I could latch onto. Where do I find "iTunes COM sdk"?

I am trying to make an AutoIT script from the following vbs script:

Set objApp = CreateObject("iTunes.Application")

Set colSources = objApp.Sources

Set objSource = colSources.ItemByName("Library")

Set colPlaylists = objSource.Playlists

Set objPlaylist = colPlaylists.ItemByName("Party Shuffle")

objPlaylist.PlayFirstTrack
