Run a script with locked scren

Recommended Posts

eagle4life69

Ok so I have a program that opens Firefox and proceeds to log into my companies site and looks for new jobs and prints out any tickets that are approved by the customer. It does use mouse inputs and clicks in some spots to make input job numbers.

Question:

Can this be ran on a screen that is not logged in? We have it on a production machine and I would like to run it on our server instead but the server is locked 99% of the time.

let me know if this can be done using the current set-up.

Thanks

Can you run an autoit script without a user logged in? Yes, as a service.

Can you simulate mouse moves and clicks while the machine is locked? No.

Perhaps a virtual machine running in the background could do this for you?

Also might be possible without VM if you were to use IE and its numerous functions instead of firefox.

and possibly even if you use FF.au3. But as stated mouse functions will be useless which is why you would

need to set any fields with the relevant UDF and some Win* functions like winactive etc.. would need to be replaced.

I was using FF.au3 and for some reason some of the functions have failed since the newest update... Thanks for the help
