I am trying to do this on windows. My program(executable) has been
written in VC++ and when I run this program, I need to click on one
button on the program GUI i,e just I am entering "Enter key" on the
key board. But this needs manual process. So i need to write a python
script which invokes my program and pass "Enter key" event to my
program so that it runs without manual intervention.
Thank in advance for the help.
