AutoHotkey v1.1.14.03 Updated

Checker on 18 Feb 2014

AutoHotkey is a powerful automation and scripting tool with included macro recorder and export to a self-contained executable. Possible uses include assigning the hotkey "Ctrl-Alt-F" to launch Firefox, making abbreviations expand to their full definition as you type them, or saving time by setting the computer to auto-click a confirmation screen. The scripting language used is mostly backward compatible with AutoIt2 scripts.

The program can create entire applications and has been used to create many hosted here on PortableFreeware including 7plus, WallPaper Randomizer, Gridy, and many more.

@BillDixon : I use the portable version under Win7 and it works fine! Start it with administrator rights.

"stealth: ? No. Places an ahk script file in user documents by default"
Autohotkey Ask's the user to put the file there, Yes or No
And if you put a file there(appdir) called "autohotkey.ahk" it will launch that one (even emty).
Also it shouldn't be launched directly you schould have passed a script to it.

so it schould be:
stealth=Yes

Oops. Went to the autoit portable link, where Avast blocked the download of autoit creator.exe, claimed it was infected with Win32-Evo-gen ...

Ganamyde on 2013-12-24 08:40

Twisted language, go for AutoHotkey instead.

guinness on 2013-12-24 10:13

@IanFromBarrie, strange as Avast is being over protective. AutoIt Creator is designed by me and is not affiliated with AutoIt.

@Ganamyde, in the future please give a reason as to why that is, otherwise your comment has no merit.

I'm explaining my issue above. For example, When I write "hth", program must write "Hope this helps!". But it writes "Hope ths helps!" (no lower i) No trouble with upper İ and other letters. only lower i. I can't make it write lower i. I'm using Windows 7 x64 Turkish.

lautrepay on 2012-07-01 14:37

@veyselcelik: I've been using TyperTask for about a year and have never had problems with missing letters. Perhaps a problem with the rules?
I can replicate your issue if I add this rule:
"i="
(with no quotes)

veyselcelik on 2012-07-03 15:55

@lautrepay, I just downloaded and type hth. and it write Hope ths helps! (with no). it's own example rule, so i didn't write any rules. I guess it is about my windows' language.

@lurker: That's not a bad idea in theory but a .BAT launcher that is less than 1 KB bat can easily become 400 KB for a compiled AutoIt script

The author is sure persistent about using javascript on his website.
