    I would try learning visual C++ if you want to create windows desktop applications.

    Why not learn something like Java or C++, both seem capable of doing such a task..

    I'm writing my scripts with Java, its easy, also there are many of programs/methods written on net, so its easy to find them and you will definitely find answers to your questions on forums.

    Really depends on your wishes.

    You could learn to create extensions for browser. You could learn Java. You could learn PHP and how to create a web application. There are many ways you could choose.

    I can recommend Python for webautomation tasks. It's kind of easy to learn, safes time programming and is incredible powerful.
    It's open-source so you have a huge database of releases available.

    and to add python i would say its easiest language to learn if you don't have any background of programming.

    Home Page:
    autoit and winautomation are good choices, autoit is free.
    Ubot Studio is a good choice for non programmers, its pretty easy to learn for non programmers
    while I dont use it, Python is supposed to be a good choice.
    Visual Basic and C# are also good choices, and Visual Studio is free for the express edition.(you want it to write C# or Visual Basic)

    I second what homestead said. If you dont' have the patience to learn programming stick with ubot studio/zenno. I personally build everything in C# using libraries. Plenty of good tutorials out there. If you need help just msg me.

    C#/Java is the only way to implement decent and functional bot. Don't expect you would be able to write bots in a month or two. It is a big learning curve but definitely worth it. Invest in your skills I would say.

    I wouldn't recommend start learning programming as a hobby. It wouldn't work. It must become your day job in the future. So if you like programming as a subject then go ahead and start from programming tutorials and basics.

    Then after you get basics and have programmed simple training apps move on learning bots specific areas:
    1) html basics (content parsing and processing)
    2) connection/data transmittion (http(s), proxies)
    3) various web APIs (simplified or customized web resource handles)

    As a learning study write your first bot that would log into your fb account and check for new messages there.

    Please stop posting misleading information that may confuse people who may read this thread. Any programming language can be used to make a decent and functional bot. The only difference is the development speed and environment. For example, I've written a bot that contains all the functions of a specific app in Python within 2 hours. My friend who is very good in PHP coded it in 4 hours. And another friend coded it in C# for 6 hours - but with a working GUI.

    I'll admit it, I've been a .NET snob for good 2 years (ironic, because I've used VB / C++ for so long) and recently, I've been loving the updates from their 4.X framework. So this is where I realize that all language have the same standing in programming, it's just the syntax and method that divides it all.

    Coding languages is a religious topic no two answers will be the same and so ultimately it will be down to you to decide.

    What I did, and enjoyed was learned the various web languages before hitting python hard. Python is good fun because I'm an amateur and so don't want to worry about long winded syntax I just want to get on and solve the problem.

    It's quick to learn and implement. It also has plenty of open source examples.

    Python mechanise does everything you described wanting to do with a lot less code.
