Unlock windows

6 posts in this topic

I have searched through the forums but no solution was ever mentioned (except with 3rd party software)

I was hoping to find a way to Unlock a PC with only autoit scripting.

My problem is, I have scripts running to automate jobs on a PC at work. These scripts rely on pixels searches and mouse locations etc.

Occasionally I need to VPN into this PC which sets the computer in a locked state. When I am done with the VPN I need to Unlock the PC so the automation scripts will run correctly.

Couldn't you unlock it from the VPN?

lol, also broke my computer trying stuff :mellow: I tried this:

Sleep(6000)
While 1
    If ProcessExists("LogOnUI.exe") Then
        ProcessClose("LogonUI.exe")
    Else
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
    Sleep(100)
WEnd

didn't end to well, but meh. I don't know how you would log back on. The easiest way would be to just have the VPN not auto lock the computer when you disconnect


RAWR! I'm hungry :( Feed the panda squirrle

The thing is, the site our company uses to VPN from home automatically brings up the "locked" screen on the PC at work as soon as you log into the VPN.

The locked screen, of course, stays open until someone physically enters a username and password. :mellow:

There's no setting in the program to not lock it? I use LogMeIn, and there's a setting to lock after disconnect. You might be breaking some rules though, I'm sure, if you changed to settings... But then again, you're using AutoIt to do something, so meh. You could always make a robot that watches the screen and if it's on the login screen have it type the password lol. Just gotta build and program a robot now.

You said there was some third party software that could do it? Why not just use that? or are you really keen on using pure AutoIt?

well, I personally would have no problems using 3rd party software. Unfortunately this is a company PC and they are picky on what gets installed. Fortunately I was able to talk them into letting me use AutoIt :mellow:

We use SonicWall website to VPN, so there are no settings :( (at least that I can find on my website login screen)

Well... What I'm about to suggest, you may wanna deny ever hearing :mellow: but are the rules just on that you can't install stuff on the computers? Cause if so... then you could try leaving a flash drive plugged into the computer, and run it from there? :( unless they like monitor processes and such...
