[Updated] AutoHotkey..Ver.. 7/12

AutoHotkey is a free, open-source utility for Windows. With it, you can:

Automate almost anything by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks. You can write a mouse or keyboard macro by hand or use the macro recorder.
Create hotkeys for keyboard, joystick, and mouse. Virtually any key, button, or combination can become a hotkey.
Expand abbreviations as you type them. For example, typing "btw" can automatically produce "by the way".
Create custom data-entry forms, user interfaces, and menu bars. See GUI for details.
Remap keys and buttons on your keyboard, joystick, and mouse.
Respond to signals from hand-held remote controls via the WinLIRC client script.
Run existing AutoIt v2 scripts and enhance them with new capabilities.
Convert any script into an EXE file that can be run on computers that don't have AutoHotkey installed.

Change log...

Removed .aut file compatibility and #AllowSameLineComments.

Removed undocumented AutoIt v2 commands.
Backward-compatible changes:

Allow optional parameters to be declared with := instead of =, for consistency with variable declarations and expressions.

Allow non-ASCII characters in unquoted keys ({key: x} and obj.key).

Changed name in version info from "AutoHotkey_L" to "AutoHotkey".

Fixed instability caused by warning dialogs appearing part-way through evaluation of a command's args.

Fixed PixelSearch Fast mode treating "not found" as an error.

Fixed ahk_exe to allow other ahk_ criteria after it.

Fixed else continue 2 and similar requiring braces around the loop.

Fixed RegRead indicating failure after successfully reading binary data.

Fixed File.Length to compensate for or flush any buffered data.

Fixed Gui sizing to account for scrollbars when present.

Added support for asynchronous commands.

Improved handling of breakpoints on lines like else foo() or { bar() so that the debugger will actually break when appropriate.

Optimized code size, fixed several bugs and made the debugger generally more robust.


Thank you, art22gg See Profile. It's very useful tool. I've been using it for many years.

At this time the link ("Unicode x86") on its download page contains old version. But installer downloaded form main page has new version. I've just un-extracted installer's content and use it's 32bit exe file. Help file was refreshed too, BTW.
Keep it simple, it'll become complex by itself...
