Syntax SCRIPTIT script_file
Script-It.exe is no longer available for download at Microsoft.com
An alternative is the freeware tool AutoIt
Originally for NT4 Server, although it does run (rather crankily)
on more recent
OS's. Script-it works by recognising the Window Title of each
open Application / Document / Dialogue box.
The script_file is a .ini text file prepared in advance with all the keystrokes you want to send to the appropriate Window.
Example Script file:
Untitled - Notepad=Hello World
This will launch an instance of Notepad and then send the string "Hello World", when notepad.exe is closed the script will run CALC.exe
