3 posts in this topic

Hi,

i am running a AutoIt3.exe which opens a .au3 file and works properly. on a "Windows server 2003" machine.

but when i logoff the machine, the AutoIt3.exe gets stopped.

Any idea? also any workaround to prevent this.

Thanks in Advance,

Any process a user starts when he is logged on is closed when the user is logged off. This is Windows design. For applications that should run without the user present are called services (daemons on Linux). To run your script as a service see this threaed: or you can use FireDaemon if you happen to have a license anyway.

Hello!

I digged out this thread because I was searchung for a similar solution for a server, based on XP Professional that is only accessed by Remote Desktop.

Does anybody know if AutoIt - installed as a service - can still perform mouse clicks even when the remote desktop connection is disconnected? (and thus the respective XP user is kind of logged out, i guess)

Any advice is appreciated.
