AutoIt is a freeware scripting language used primarily to automate Windows, and installers and programs on windows. The official site – autoitscript.com – hosts a forum where you can get further help.
System administrators can use AutoIt to easily and quickly automate installers for programs, which would otherwise be tedious to install manually – especially if the install process needs to be performed on multiple computers.
AutoIt generally takes very little time to learn, and tools can quickly be developed, even with minimal knowledge of the language. Functions can quickly be looked up in the official help file, or searched for online, and how they are used is easy to understand.
