Issue with one and two instances of autoit running

Recommended Posts


I have created a simple script (below) to login to windows authentication while connecting to a web site.


The issue is that if i run the script once, the ControlSend do not work.

Then if i cancel and close the Internet explorer and run the autoit script again, it runs perfectly fine.

But in this case both the script runs, some times the values username and password is entered two times in the authentication box.

Could you please suggest me how do i fix this.

Either the script should run correctly for the first time.

Or there should be an way to handle the old instance of the script accessing the windows.

Thank you
