Best Windows GUI Automation Tool

In your opinion, what is the best Windows GUI automation free tool?

I have seen UI Automation PowerShell Extensions & Windows Automation Snapin for PowerShell in CodePlex, has anyone tried it?

I wish I could contribute something informative here, but I haven't had any need to do any GUI testing (automated or otherwise).  Maybe I could ask some people in our QA group.

Thanks footech, Do you know any other tool which can send Keystroke or mouse clicks to remote desktop?

I asked someone in our QA what he uses.  He they used to use SilkTest, which was really good for almost everything, but then the company was bought and the product went to pot.  Now for GUI testing they pretty much use AutoIT.  However, I don't think any of these will work with a remote desktop.  It would be my expectation for any testing tool to only work with the local machine, but maybe I'm wrong.

You could use the SendKeys method, but as I understand it the PS automation tooks you already mentioned include that.

Cost $$ but Sapien PowerShell Studio 2018.

Microsoft Studio Code has a few add-ons as well.
