Hi,
We are working on a windows based program developed in AutoHotkey.
This program is splitting large pdf files into smaller pdfs and png files.
These files are then loaded into Microsoft Azure using a web application hosted in Azure

Instead of double handing the files, we would like to store them into Microsoft Azure from the AutoHotkey program.

Is it possible to do it, and what is the best approach?

Thank you for your help

Anne

I had to take a look at the AutoHotekey program website. They give access to their source code if you want to edit it directly, however the better option seems to be making your own DLL and making a DLL call as instructed by them . inside of your DLL you should make the appropriate connection to your Azure blob storage according to the structure you want, including container name and nomenclature. You can follow this tutorial for more information on how to connect and upload to blob storage.

Hi Zach,

This is the same tutorial I used to load and download blobs in ASP.Net. What you are saying is that it works the same with a window based application.

All we need is the connection string and the security Key?

Thank you for your answer

Yes it should work just the same, you only need to build the connection and load. There is no difference between it being your server and your client application except with autohotkey you'll want to do it inside of a custom dll and call to that. You can also have multiple clients calling in to place uploads at the same time.
