Automatically generate anisotropic semivariogram parameters

I am just starting to learn how to work with ArcGIS, and I am specifically trying to automatically generate anisotropic semivariogram parameters for a series of data sets, which I can then output for subsequent use. I have managed to do this with isotropic semivariogram parameters, by first creating a geostatistical model manually, and then using the moving window kriging function to generate the semivariogram parameters automatically based on the created model. I need to process a few hundred data sets, so manually generating the parameters all of the time will not work for me.

Is there a way to get the moving window kirging function to estimate anisotropic semivariogram parameters? If not, is there any other way to automatically estimate these parameters? I know I can specify an anisotropic semivariogram model using the geostatistical analyst wizard, but as far as I know I cannot automate the wizard to automatically calculate the anisotropic semivariogram parameters.

Thank you!
