Scripting Question

Alternative to Autoit

06/22/2017 2640 views
Hello all,

I use Autoit very frequently when automating a software installation. I notice that Autoit has been giving me alot of issues and wanted to see if anyone knows of a good alternative to Autoit. I don't mind if its a proprietary software. I just need something that works like Auto it but more reliable.

  • Just curious, but what issues have you been experiencing with AutoIt?
    Some people use AutoHotKey as an alternative, but good old batch scripting and Powershell is stable and reliable.
  • I use Powershell for just about everything. I purchased Powershell Studios by Sapien for the added frills and ease of packaging.
    A lot of people also use the PS deployment toolkit: https://psappdeploytoolkit.codeplex.com/

I have been creating packages/application deployments for years and have never had to use AutoIt or anything similar.

How? Well, applications are just a bunch of files and registry data. If an application requires configuration, it's going to end up as one or the other (or sometimes both) so that stuff just gets included in the package.
