Automating CS3Clean.exe...

I'm trying to figure out how to automate the CS3Clean.exe utility Adobe provided for faulty CS3 installations. It basically cleans the machine where no single Adobe bit is (supposed to be) left on the system.

The utility has been developed in Pythin it seems. It opens in a default command line interpreter and asks a ton of questions... It's pretty easy to use AutoIt to answer all questions but I'm having difficulties with the last {ENTER}. Depending on the system your running CS3Clean.exe on it takes a certain amount of time to remove all Adobe data.

Does anyone have an idea how I can beat this one? It seems the Window ActiveText is not visible..

Many thanks! [8|]

I wouldn't imagien you'd get many answers, if any, to your question. It would be better posted in an Adobe forum, I think.

If it were me, I'd be thinking of converting it to a scripting langauge I understand. Then you don't have to bother fudging things with AutoIt or whatever.
