I need some help automating some tasks in XP. Most of them are of console nature. Now in Linux this probably wouldn't be too difficult to pull off but I'm not too acquainted with Windows automation capabilities. There are couple of scripts I need. I presume there are ways to script this in Windows 7 using Microsoft-DOS but I'm unsure. Just to be clear I'm merely listing what I would need to be done, so you know what feature set I require, I'm not asking to write scripts for me.
1. Zip folder
2. Add the rest of the folder including the previous zip into SVN.
3. Open Zip and overwrite some folder.
1. Copy file to a specific folder
2. Execute that file in a browser
So what tool would allow me to automate these tasks?
