Looks like with 8.98 they've removed even more features from the previous 9.87 free version (detect well-known whitelisted libraries/blacklisted resources), funny they don't mention that in the changelog.

AutoHotkey v1.1.34.02 Updated

Special on 12 May 2022
  • 7MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 May 2022
  • Suggested by Jon Pajela

AutoHotkey is a powerful automation and scripting tool with an option to 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 program can create entire applications and has been used to create many hosted here on PortableFreeware including 7plus, WallPaper Randomizer, Gridy and many more.

Note: Pulover's Macro Creator can be used as a macro recorder and includes an "Export to AHK" function.

Category:
Runs on:WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Win11
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? No. By default, it places an ahk script file in user documents. However, if you place a ahk file with the same name alongside the executable (eg. autohotkey.exe => autohotkey.ahk), it becomes stealth.
Unicode support: Yes
License: GNU GPLv2
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch AutoHotkeyU32.exe or AutoHotkeyU64.exe (for 64-bit OS).

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but if you download the installer and extract, you get all the exes (32/64 unicode and ansi), Window Spy, the help chm, a template and the ahk2exe compiler.

Also it is stealth if you place a ahk file named the same as the executable, it wil not place anything in the user directory. So if your executable is "autohotkey.exe" name it "autohotkey.ahk"

@emmanuel d: Thanks! I have updated the description.
