in reply to Gui Automation using guitest

Although I hesitate to muddy the waters in a long thread with useful information, it really appears (and you say yourself) that you do not want to be a programmer. What you really want is to automate the interaction of a Microsoft Windows application. Although you are working down the road to better understanding Win32::GuiTest, I would suggest a tool that's somewhat friendlier than a "raw" Perl API: AutoIt. It's got a scripting environment, so you can do programming, but you don't have to. It has a a tool to identify Windows windows and widgets that you could use even if you wanted to do the work in Perl. I highly recommend it.
