running an AutoIt script

4 posts in this topic

I have made several AutoIt scripts - and they are very helpful, however, I can't figure out how to run the scripts when I am not logged in to the computer. Is there a way to run AutoIt scripts when you are not logged in? I have tried to compile the scripts I made and use windows scheduled tasks - but that doesn't work.

A scheduled task should work fine, unless the script tries to use things not available in that environment, like the desktop or active windows.

i am using the command prompt. so i assume it would use the desktop or something like that. i didn't know autoit could run without an active window. so how could i have AutoIt do things like copy files from an ftp to a local directory on a windows machine without an active window?

You can add this to the top of your script:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=Y

But I'm not sure you even need to do that.

Use task scheduler to call a batch file, and the only line in the batch file is something like this:

CMD /c "C:\Full\Path\YourScript.exe"
