Cheat Engine.... No

AutoIt v3 is a freeware BASIC-like scripting language designed for automating the Windows GUI. It uses a combination of simulated keystrokes, mouse movement and window/control manipulation in order to automate tasks in a way not possible or reliable with other languages (e.g. VBScript and SendKeys).

AutoIt was initially designed for PC "roll out" situations to configure thousands of PCs, but with the arrival of v3 it is also well suited to performing home automation and the scripting of repetitive tasks.

AutoIt can:

* Execute Windows and DOS executables

* Simulate key strokes (supports most keyboards layouts)

* Simulate mouse movements and clicks

* Move, resize and manipulate windows

* Interact directly with "controls" on a window (set/get text, move, disable, etc.)

* Work with the clipboard to cut/paste text items

* Work with the registry

Unlike AutoIt v2, the new v3 language has a much more standard syntax -similar to VBScript and BASIC - and now supports complex expressions, user functions, looping and everything else that veteran scripters would expect.

As with previous versions, AutoIt has been designed to be as small as possible and stand-alone with no external .dll files or registry entries required. Scripts can also be compiled into stand-alone executables with Aut2Exe.

There have also been updates to the ActiveX and DLL versions of AutoIt called AutoItX - unlike v2 this will be a combined control (COM and standard DLL functions in the same DLL). AutoItX will allow you to add the unique features of AutoIt to your own favourite scripting or programming languages! See the AutoItX Help file (Start \ AutoIt v3 \ Extras \ AutoItX \ AutoItX Help File) for more information and examples.

Best of all, AutoIt continues to be FREE - but if you want to support the time, money and effort spent on the project and web hosting then you may donate at the AutoIt homepage.

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

No, AutoIt has nothing to do with cheats. Although it has been known to be used for that purpose, it is not the primary use and very little help with cheating can be expected on these forums.

Here is a good explanation of AutoIt and what it was designed for.
