For Next Loop and Do Untill

I am using the following batch script to install Windows patches on new machines



FOR %%I IN (WindowsXP*.exe) DO (


START WAIT %%I /quiet /norestart



How can i achieve the same result using AutoIT v3 with error logging. I've tried using the help available. I am not a programmer.

I would appreciate if someone could help me out

thank you

Thank you very much


I need a minute modification though. at present the consolewrite(i think) writes the filenames one after another without space. how can I have each file name in new lines and everything written to a text file

EDIT: 'new line' got it working using the example from AutoIT help

but still need output to text file

FileWriteLine from the helpfile:

$file = FileOpen("test.txt", 1)

; Check if file opened for writing OK
If $file = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Error", "Unable to open file.")

FileWriteLine($file, "Line1")
FileWriteLine($file, "Line2" & @CRLF)
FileWriteLine($file, "Line3")
