With VBscript you can automate some things, but not everything. It is free,
but is seriously annoying to work with. Especially if, like me, you are used
to easy coding with RevTalk (or whatever it is called now), you might find
VBscript to be torturous.

For me, though, I cannot add in extra executable files at work. They get
blocked in our Citrix environment. Can AutoIt run in some other form besides
as an executable? Like, can it be turned into a Rev external?

I apologize if that is an ignorant question. I don't know much about
