  • 1.  How to automate Windows Applications

    Posted Thu October 07, 2021 04:25 AM
    Customers want to realize the automation of Windows applications, such as QQ, wechat, U8 ERP and so on. In particular, U8 ERP automation wants to automatically log in to ERP and complete a series of operations.
    The official only sees SAP tutorials, not windows application automation related tutorials. Can you provide an example or a video tutorial.
    Some websites, such as youtube, cannot be accessed in China.
    Therefore, the RPA video provided by the community cannot be opened.
    If you have a PDF tutorial in this area, you can also.
    Thank you.

    Hi Ding Wei,

    If you go to the Library tab at the top of this page, there is a stand-alone tutorial here:


    There is also a sample bot that integrates to WhatsApp (similar to WeChat) :

    Thank you very much for your reply!
    But WhatsAPP should not be used in Chinese mainland. Let me look at this example first.
    thank you!

    The example uses the WhatsApp web interface which is started by scanning a QR code from the registered phone.  Wechat has a similar interface so you should be able to do the same.  Let me know how you get on.  I have a WeChat account so would be interested to see if you get this to work!  Note the sample is in Spanish, so you will need to use Google Translate on it

    Hello!
    The Chinese mainland can't use WhatsAPP, mobile phone can download APP, but it can't be registered and used.
    Thank you.

    I copied the code of the WhatsApp example, but the excel file cannot be downloaded.
    At the same time. WhatsAPP is not available in mainland China.

    The excel file is in the asset folder within the git repo. 

    Here is an English version with excel in the same directory as the WAL:

    WhatsApp Bot

    I will investigate adapting this to WeChat.
