How do I wait for password prompt in a green screen emulator?

2 posts in this topic

I am trying to automate password changes and firewall authorizations. I use terminal emulators like PCOMM or puTTy. In either case, you start the window, and enter the password change command or the userID. Usually you get the "enter old password" prompt right away but some times there is a delay of up to a few seconds that can cause a timing error. How do I wait for a specific event in a green screen like puTTy or PCOMM?

AU3Info allows you to get information from a specified window that can be used to effectively automate it.
