I'm unsure about your first question... might come back to it after I think about it.

But no , they don't need AutoIt installed as long as the script is compiled to a .exe


To your first Question:

Well. I think you would have to do this two ways:

1. Have the file stored on the site somehow where it can be triggered.

2. Have the file on the users computer already.

I'm not sure if #1 is possible , because that would be a gateway for hackers of all kinds. I don't see something like that working , you might just have to have them DOWNLOAD the program and than run it themselves.

I want to know if there is a way to get an Autoit script to run when they click on a link on a webpage?

Do they need Autoit insalled for it to work?

If you want it to run on the client system, you must use an HTA (.hta Hypertext Application) that has access to the filesystem. See MSDN.

Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
