    I want to fill in an input box with powershell

    Hi all,

    So I've created a script that first asks for some input. In this case a name.
    After someone (me) has given this input in the input box I've created this gets stored for later use.
    Then the real fun starts.
    This script calls upon an exe to run an install.
    During this install i need to fill in some input boxes from this install.
    Now my question is, can I use powershell to fill in data from the memory (from inputs) and also see when a next has to be pressed, or when a connection has to be made, and things like that.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I use AutoIt to automate that sort of thing. It's free and easy to learn.

    but always with some small changes.
    is that also possible with autoit?

    Yes, you just have to program it that way.

    cheers, Paul

    An alternative to AutoIt is AutoHotkey. Like AutoIt, AutoHotkey is also free and easy to learn.

    Have a look at this article for a comparison/review: AutoHotkey Versus AutoIt

    For people considering either, I would suggest spending a bit of time in each of their Support forums to get a feel for the 'response quality' (speed of response, level of helpfulness, useful pointers to info, etc.), particularly to obvious 'newby' questions.

    Hope this helps...

    Edit: See this post for information about a free new ebook about using AutoHotkey.
