Applescript and windows, the most useless OS in the world.

I have written sevral great applescrips that automate much and pass data between applications. I now have a business partner who works in the windows world (Blech!) and he need some similar automation. Is there any way windows can do the things applescript can do also?[/u]

More or less.

Under Windows the rough peer to AppleScript is VisualBasic in combination with something called Windows Scripting Host. These technologies take advantage of the COM interfaces provided by many applications and libraries on Windows.

If VisualBasic does not float your boat, I understand that there are COM bindings available for Perl, Python, JavaScript and a number of other scripting languages.
