Sometimes I find myself having to run a lot of separate installers, and I wondered if I could automate it. A good example is running separate audio plugin installers that all have an identical procedure:
- Click Agree/Continue a few times
- Deselect unnecessary plugin formats
- Enter your password
- Click Install
The main sticking point for me at the moment is step 2.
If tickboxes exist in the front window, I'd like to click any whose names contain
VST. I feel like an AppleScript ninja might be able to help with this.
Here's a UI Element reference to the
checkbox "VCL-4 Vintage Opto Leveler AAX" of row 2 of outline 1 of scroll area 1 of group 1 of splitter group 1 of group 1 of window 1
With regard to the password window, I'm currently attempting a found image click at every step (failure doesn't abort the macro), but it would be better if I could determine the most recent matching button. Is there a token for which match was found in the previous action? If the last match was
Install, then I'd know the password window was coming up next.
Finally, is there a way to exclude a match from the button presses?
In this example, I want to press any button that matches
Install but that doesn't match
