You could probably do it with AutoIT, though it would take some practice to get right. If you have an engineer to work with, they could probably make quick work out of it (after complaining about how AutoIT is too much like Visual Basic) with your help.

Gallagher Sent: Wednesday, February 20, 2008 8:17 PM To: framers at lists.frameusers.com Subject: Scripting pulling FM files from version control and creating PDFs Framers, A client would like to be able to have a script that runs nightly that will do the following: - Pull FM files and books from their version control system (PVCS) - Maybe set conditions (not sure if this is needed yet) - Update the books - Create PDFs of books and some stand-alone files - Put the resulting PDFs in a specific place for the nightly build It seems like fmbatch can do this, but I think it only works with FM for Unix (they have FM for Win). Can any of the other FDK tools do this? (An in-house developer will likely write the script.) What about FrameScript? What tool is best? Thanks for your help! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Linda G.
