Added Python 3 support
AutoItLibrary is a Python keyword library that extends Robot Framework (http://code.google.com/p/robotframework/) by providing keywords based on the COM interface to AutoIt (http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/index.shtml). AutoIt is a freeware tool for automating the Windows GUI.
In order to do screenshots, the AutoItLibrary uses the Open Source Python Image Library tool PIL (http://www.pythonware.com/products/pil/).
Make sure you run the installation command with administrative privilages.
pip install robotframework-autoitlibrary
AutoItLibrary installs its own file and, if not already present, the 3rd party AutoIt and PIL tools. To install, unzip the release file into a temporary directory on your PC, open a command window in that directory and type:
python setup.py install
