AutoIt is a freeware scripting language, used primarily to automate Windows, and programs in 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 installation processes, which would otherwise be tedious to go through manually – especially if they need to repeatedly run the install process on multiple computers.
AutoIt generally takes very little time to learn, and tools can be developed, requiring minimal knowledge of the language. Functions can quickly be looked up in the help file and online, and their use typically easy to understand.
