I need to automate desktop application i.e Bluetooth PTS tool. But can't find any good way to do. I have no exposure to scripting.

What operating system? You tagged it Python, does it need to be in Python? – Niels van Reijmersdal Jul 11 '14 at 11:38
Scripting is programming. Learn programming first. Automating it using convenient programming language is the only way to do it. As Niels said, Python is excellent first language for programming beginners, with many free online resources. Good luck! – Peter Masiar Jul 14 '14 at 14:00

Talking about UI testing you can try Sikuli - great tool which uses image recognition. Also it is a lib which can be installed with Sikuli: Tesseract which allows to grab/recognize text. It supports Python(Jython), Java, etc.

AutoIt works great for simple automation tasks. It doesn't require scripting if you use it in it's basic form of record-play.
