Can I execute my script while user has locked screen saver running?

2 posts in this topic

I have a script written to run a third parties' little exectuable to update some catalogs in their application. I have to feed a few key strokes to the installer they wrote, and while I have an active user session to run in, everything works fine. The question I have is, can I perform the process at night, and have it run even though my user has a password protected screen saver running? I promise to read the docs if someone can point me in the general direction of the commands I need to use to run this way.

Probably, yes -- but I expect that you'll need to interface with the executable via control functions, e.g. ControlSend() and ControlSetText(), instead of using Send().

Use the AutoIt Window Info tool to get the control info you'll need. You can also read up on controls in the AutoIt help file under AutoIt -> Using AutoIt -> Controls.
