Locked Screen Interactivity

3 posts in this topic

I've noticed that some non-AutoIt programs can interact with a locked screen, for things like third party authentication like thumb print or card readers... and then this program that allows a non-admin to forcibly log anyone off a locked computer. Even if the functionality isn't built in to AutoIt, how is it even possible to do this? Maybe I'm not wording this correctly in searches, but I can't find any documentation on this ability in Windows.

It looks like this particular program uses two separate EXEs, but using one as service.

from what I can see this is out of the purview of autoit currently, maybe someone will come up with a UDF or function as this would be really useful and in keeping with autoit function, I have also looked extensively and currently my knowledge does allow me to make such a function in autoit.

You answered your own question here:

Services by default are running under SYSTEM user, which is pretty much the same as administrator, with a few restrictions, such as network access (if I'm not mistaken)
