Execute GUI commands from the command line


I have a rather simply query to put forward, how would I go about exectuing GUI commands from the command line?

You see, I must collect all the S/N of our Windows 7 installations to ensure that we are complying with our site license agreement. We have, however, several computers to check and I would like to automate this process. So far, I have found KeyFinder, which will auto-magically find the S/N and then you can save that output to a text file. This process still forces us to check each computer individually, though, and I thought that a batch script might help automate the process.

So far I can run the program, but have no way of accessing the GUI menu in order to save the file:
@echo off
START "Key Finder" /Dpath\to\network\drive "keyfinder-2.0.1.exe"
Which, as you may know, merely starts the program. How then, can I add into my batch script the functionality to save the output? Better yet, have you found a quicker way to automatically grab the S/N of your Windows installations?

Thank you all kindly for your time, and eagerly await your responses.

Re: Execute GUI commands from the command line

You can look at Exec library form the Apache Commons project. Also check the below example given like javac Filename.java from java gui :



Or you can also download the “Script Executor” GUI and command prompt tool for multiple scripts execution.
