  1. I am feeling really stupid. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. I followed the "Winzip" example, and I cannot get autoit to simply send an enter when the first window appears. There are 2 windows like that, and neither one gets the enter. ShellExecute("VMware-EnhancedAuthenticationPlugin-6.7.0.exe") WinWaitActive("VMware Plug-in Service Installer.","instances will be closed") Send("{ENTER}") WinWaitActive("VMware Plug-in Service Installer.","run in succession") Send("{ENTER}") WinWaitActive("VMwar
  2. I use Vmware Workstation to run servers, client and other devices. The reason I use Workstation instead of Esxi is because I find it easier to copy the VM files when the host machine crashes (just unplug *raid 1* disk and add it to the new host). Because I do not want to reinstall everytime, I often copy an existing VM to test something or just use the copy a base to install other apps. In the past I used to use VmConverter, but the latest version won't copy/rename my latest VMs anymore and the older VmConverters do not support the last VM-format. So I decided to make my own "VmConve
  3. Which Powershell command in the PowerCLI module for VMware ESX used to interact with UI apps? When I launch any exe/any exeutable using powercli on guest VM using powercli command. Invoke-VMScript, I am able to run them in the background but not in the foreground. i.e., UI apps are not launching but showing the background as running in the task manager. We need our UI Automation scripts to execute in the VM, but it is not working. We are able to do in virtualbox and hyper-v but not in vmware esx using powercli. Please suggest.
  4. Hi everyone, i am writing to you after a very long struggle i had while trying to figure out how to send a simple click inside a virtual machine running in vmware workstation 14. i have an autoit script running on my host machine watching for the UAC prompt to be displayed in a running vm. Both the host and the guest OS are Windows 10. This script worked perfectly with virtual box. It recognized the UAC prompt and clicked inside and the UAC was accepted. Since i switched to VMware Workstation 14, the script no longer clicks inside the VM successfully. It acts as if it clicks, but it
  5. Hello all ~ I am running an autoit script on Windows 10 inside VMware Workstation 12 Pro version 12.5.2. Technically I am remoting into ESXi which has a Domain Controller (DC), WebServer, FilServer, Windows 10, etc. Using the GUI (i.e. running explorer.exe) I am able to open several different folders successfully. The desktop, documents, USB external all open without issue. The network share opening gives me issues. Whenever I attempt to open \\filserver\users\user\sharedfolder I get the documents folder instead. I understand that the documents folder is the default for explorer. I
  6. Hello, I have a dialog box that pops up during an install on a foreign OS. In this case Spanish. The dialog displays a message the program being installed needs to install .Net, CRT, and C++. When inspected the dialog it seems normal. I can get control IDs, Text, Position, everything. But when I try to have AutoIt interact with it e.g. move it, click a button, click on a control, ControlGetFocus, Send("{TAB}"), ControlClick(). Nothing works. What even weirder is I can WinActivate the dialog but then can't move the mouse with MouseMove. If I don't WinActivate(), I can use the MouseMove()
  7. With the below command I am able to revert a virtual machine in vmware workstation to a snapshot mentioned. $sVMPath = <path of the vmx file of virtual machine> $sSnapshot = <snapshot name> $Ret = RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c VMRun.exe -T WS revertToSnapshot ""$sVMPath$"" ""$sSnapshot$"" nogui", "", @SW_HIDE) But the problem here is the virtual machine may contain multiple snapshots with same name because multiple users use same workstation and eventually they are keeping same name sometimes like below or in a
  8. Greetings, people of the interweb! I'm trying to get started on automating actions using the VMware API, but I reached a dead end. I was trying out this example but it doesn't work for me at all. Line 9, Char 1, Object required: 'VixCOM'. All that I've done now is got a grasp of how the vmrun works via command line, but I do not find it enough for me. Could anyone point me at the correct direction or tell me what I'm doing wrong? (Please note that the script is in VBS, I want to get it working first, then continue translating it to AutoIT) Dim lib Dim host Dim job Dim vm Dim result Set
