Starting with with this release, Allan Zimmermann added native AutoHotkey capability. Look out, world! :D
(In the animated GIF you can see that "Parameter1" was declared in OpenRPA, passed to the AHK activity, modified, and returned to OpenRPA.)

Yeah, that's it all right. I'm pretty sure the one shipped is based on sharpAHK, but I have dropped in the activity dlls from UiPath's open-sourced script activities too, which use AutoHotkey.Interop, also a C# wrapper around AutoHotkey.dll. Both work.
