JSI Tip 0561 - The Microsoft Scriptit Utility.

Note that ScriptIt is not a traditional scripting language and does not offer many of the traditional programming language constructs. The ScriptIt command must be started by a user with sufficient security privileges to perform the designated installation or configuration task."

"Microsoft® ScriptIt is a command-line utility for automating interactive software installations and system configuration tasks. ScriptIt works by monitoring the window titles of active processes. When it finds a window with which it should interact, it sends a set of keystrokes to that window. ScriptIt uses the window title or a combination of the window title and text that appears on controls within the window to identify the window that will receive the keystrokes. The use of the window title combined with text allows ScriptIt to differentiate between multiple windows that have the same title bar."
