Autoit and Vmware converter
Order - WinActivate ("Calculator" [, "text"]) - allows for example to enable the focus to the window named "Calculator".
The number of features is impressive and we can use AutoIt to act on the hard disk (research, creating or deleting files, creating virtual disk ...), on the keyboard, the mouse on the registry (adding or removal of keys) on the process (waiting, destruction, priority) ... The opportunities seem enormous if you include the management of variables, loops and all these things that make programming exciting. AutoIt can even compile a script to create a file. Exe usable without the software.
Setup & Installation:
There are always two lines of development of AutoIt. A stable version is released every few months. This version is essentially a bug-free view, even if the guarantee, of course, never be 100%. However, the main functions are in use for so long that you can rely on their functioning. For UDFs that is itself in the stable version does not always like that, but in most cases, these are adequately tested. There are days every few beta versions, new features include those that are not yet fully tested, however, and sometimes contain bugs. are reports of bugs already found it in BugReport.
There you would also have to register if you found bug to have a think. It is recommended that currently stable, and a possible date to have the beta installed for programming. So you can compile for errors in the beta or with the stable version, but also use all beta-functions. The development of each script starts with an au3 file to create. The easiest way in the Explorer. There you can also create a subfolder for the same script so that the order is maintained and several scripts do not mix. The file you put the shortcut menu in the newly created folder on New > AutoIt v3 Script to. Still an appropriate name and open the file by double-clicking Forgive in SciTE.
If you want to change the information that contains the default template for au3 files, then simply adjust the file C: \ Windows \ ShellNew \ Template.au3 (or the equivalent in other Windows directory) as desired, and save it from its initial location. In SciTE can be the minus key on the numeric keypad one or several (then) marked lines quickly and comment out one. Similarly, one can use the hotkey CTRL + Q for it. This is particularly advantageous when one sits on the notebook.
for versions of AutoIt, earlier than the version at the time of this writing, working Exe2Aut.exe utility for decompiling reverse previously compiled scripts (for decompilation can be installed password) versions of AutoIt, earlier than the version at the time of this writing, supported version of Windows 9x.

New Version :
The new version recognizes AutoIt3 conventional design and has a standard syntax, which resembles the syntax VBScript and BASIC, and supports the processing of complex expressions, the implementation of its own functions, to carry out cyclic and conventional calculations. In addition AutoIt3 suited for all that are already using veteran writers.
As before, AutoIt has a small amount of shell (~ 100KB), which is independent and does not refer to other than the system. Dll libraries. It intentionally does not separate or hidden registry entries, except for the mandatory components of the process and complete installation. Scripts can be compiled into an independent executable files using the supplied compiler scripts - Aut2Exe.
Together with the interpreter upgraded ActiveX and DLL version of AutoIt, which are called AutoItX3. This library is a combined composite (COM and standard DLL library in one module). AutoItX3 allows you to add unique features AutoIt in your applications written in other programming languages.
What it can do :
Sample Batch file for Normal Mode:
Run ('C: \ Program Files \ RivaTuner \ RivaTuner.exe') ; Or so: FileChangeDir ('C: \ Program Files \ RivaTuner \') Run ('RivaTuner.exe')
Run (@ ProgramFilesDir & '\ RivaTuner \ RivaTuner.exe')
Wizard-driven, intuitive interface of VMware Converter to convert your physical machines into virtual machines. VMware Converter quickly converts physical machines running Microsoft Windows and third formats disk images into virtual machines. This solution also provides the conversion of virtual machines between VMware platforms. VMware Converter automates and simplifies the conversion of physical machines into virtual machines, as well as conversions between virtual machine formats.
It is used to virtualize a physical server or a PC in a virtual machine images to work with VMWare. I often use when I have to work on a physical server for ample time to stop and not have to end users, or if a server goes down an exact replica and having to lift when needed. It details how to install the VMWare Converter and how to make an exact copy of a computer (could also be done on a computer on the LAN) and it is best that you can do hot, without having to stop anyone. Then we light the virtual machine with VMWare Workstation.
VMware coming true, one after another, their promises. He announced that soon will V2P order to pass a physical system virtual machine. That I now do with the Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery, by using the Restore Anywhere Option, but if it comes to bringing the Converter in a future edition will be to take your hat off for the umpteenth time to the people of VMware.
Alternative for Autoit
In line with AutoIt , and also using portions of this one, AutoHotKey to create scripts to automate certain tasks and to associate them with keyboard shortcuts that is only activated to run the script question. These scripts can range from simply launching an application to more complex tasks implement variables or conditions. AutoHotKey uses for that language and syntax that requires some learning, the software does not allow to define scripts through a GUI, as Automator for Mac OS X. However, this syntax only requires some basic programming and a tutorial is available on the website of the author.
The program CLR Script automates common tasks using Windows Script Files. Using a language like C, powerful script programs can be written. Here are some ideas on how to use CLR Script. It performs multiple tasks with one command. For example, when you connect to the Internet, the tasks can be: numbers for connecting to the Internet, launch your email program, check your new mail, launch your browser to a specific page. Sign in with a single click access to your favorite Web sites. Open a series of Web pages in the new browser from Windows. Launch programs from the menu on the system tray. Run scripts at specific times.
Win Automation software is published by Softomotive you avoid repeating the same task each time you need. It allows you to save your work routines and to use them in the future. Any activity of mouse or keyboard can be recorded and if you wish, you can even change the number of steps in any task in a single action. The software was designed to eliminate mistakes and above all to prevent you to do everything manually. Now you just have to adjust your own settings in the configuration setting to be able to admire Win Automation in action. The macro recorder is easy to install and can be tested free for 30 days.
