Sending Commands to MSFlexGridWndClass

Recommended Posts


Hello, I've been searching the net and the forums for answer on this but I'm not finding anything. I have a small back up program running on a server that I am using AutoIT to automate. I would like the script to be able to run while I am not logged in (which is mostly done via Remote Desktop) and for the most part, I am able to use CommandSend to get things done. I have hit a wall with a MSFlexGridWndClass which contains check boxes that select the different servers drives that need to be backed up. If I am logged in I can use Send to hit tab 4 times and press space. This selects the check box that selects all drives. But the Send command does not work if someone is not logged in.

My question is this: Is there a way to either make the server 'think' that it is still logged in while that selection is made? Or is there some way to reliably send key strokes to a MSFlexGridWndClass (which do not have control IDs)

Thanks for your time, here's the summary for the Window Info:
