    Hi all so I've never programed before and I would like to automate an iTunes task. What I want to do is log into an iTunes account, go to an iMix, give it a five star rating, log out and repeat. From what I understand Autoit is a program that would let me do this. Is there a program that does not involve programing that I could use to create this automation task? I have heard of iMacros but that seems to be web based only and I will be using the iTunes program. If not does any one know where I can get some tutorials for autoit or any other program that you might suggest? Thanks for helping out a noob!:)

    You have to program the macro and tell it what to do... I suggest getting Ghost Mouse and automating everything except the login (you can't change the username/password each run).

    Thanks for the suggestion. For fun I downloaded autohotkey just to see if I could do it and it was so easy that I made the script in 3 hours. Now I just have to figure how to import a list of accounts and passwords.
