Starting AHK Script from Visual Studio 2017 C# Code

Post by lulu2203 » 21 Jul 2018, 15:46

Hey Guys, I'm a total newbie to AHK and Visual Studio. I want to start an AHK Script from a .NET Console Application using C# code, but I really don't know how. Could someone tell me step by step what I have to do?
Thank you! :)

This should go into the 'Ask for Help' subforum instead.
But wouldn't it rather be a question for the C# community? (Well, probably someone here can help you anyway)
If AHK is installed, any AHK script can be started like any other program (an *.ahk-script is just a text file, but it will be started via Autohotkey.exe after installation, if you try to run it).

.net - Launching an application (.EXE) from C#? - Stack Overflow

You can launch either the .ahk file itself or AutoHotkey.exe with the .ahk file as an argument.
