AutoIt executable behaves differently on headles Win7 call

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have written a AutoIt script that handles Firefox saveas dialogs when we are running automated tests for our web application with a neat combination of Hudson/Maven/RobotFramework. On our new test machine which is running Win7/x64 the script seems to have a problem that wasn't a problem in WinXP before. As Hudson is running as a Slave Service we cannot really look into the things happening there, but on XP before that was working, So I just would like to know if there are some things to consider when writing scripts now.

Cheers,

Kai

First thing that comes to my mind is that you might be running under a none privileged account and UAC interferes. Take a look at

Are you running the service on the System account?

No, the slave service runs as a local admin user.

UAC is turned off and the user is admin. But the script is not requiring any admin rights as it is simply doing the firefox save as procedure. It works fine as the same user logged in, just not in headless
