Running tray application on server (Win XP)

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have a small AutoIT application that sit on the tray all day. What is it trying to do is check internet connection every 1 minute and launch telnet to connect to local router if the connection die. I put this application run on a file server. I just realized that the application doesn't work because this file server is display a logon screen all day waiting for somebody to login. The application itself is running every time the file server turned on, but the application doesn't work because (I think) it need to launch telnet (on windows XP) to do its job when the internet connection die. How can telnet window run when the server display the logon screen all the time?

Is there any solution for this problem?

Thanks :)

Hi michaelslamet,

as far as I know there is no way of displaying a telnet connection (or any other program) while you are on the login screen. If the server is just locked (a user is logged in but the screen has been locked) then there should be no problem. But then again, you still need to unlock the server to see the application.

Thanks Hannes :)

I decided to remove the logon screen from file server. Not a good solution, but I think it's ok for me :)
