i need your help guys. I am working in the QA department of my company. A little part of or software produces hints (like little popups) which needs to be tested every release. I wrote scripts to trigger those hints and i also implemented the imagesearch.dll to find those hints on the screen. My goal now is it to let the machine work over night, so when i come back to work i only get a report which says 130/140 hints were found successfully. This already works, aslong as my pc is not locked, but i want/need to lock my pc because of security concerns.
My general question. Is it possible to run my scripts on my locked PC and still find an image that i provide which will open sooner or later in the background?
Thanks in advance
[SOLVED] Can I run an Autoit script that requires focus and mouse clicks in the background and do work?By nooneclose
Good morning, I have been thinking about trying to make my Autoit script run in the background. I found out today that it is impossible due to the UIA and mouseclick functions that I use. However, while reading other posts about running Autoit scripts in the background I saw a reply mentioning how a script like mine might be able to run on a VM while still giving me the ability to work on my Host OS. Can someone confirm this?
Here is a link to the thread where I saw VM mentioned.

Maybe you can help me with something small.
It is not terrible but it slows down my script and after a while even crash the script.
First i explain what i have;
I have a GUI with a lot of GUICtrlCreateInput controls, lets say 600 pieces.
All the controls are hidden when the GUI is displayed, i have 3 buttons attached to 200 pieces each.
When i press button-1 the first 200 controls are showed,
When i press button-2 the first 200 controls are hidden and the next 200 controls are showed,
This is working perfectly but after a while the GUI is getting slower and slower.
After a while the controls aren't responding anymore and the script crashes.
When i compile the script to 64-Bits version the speed is a lot better but you can still see the script slowing down each time i use the buttons.
I think there has to be a buffer somewhere that is filling each time i show and hide the controls, but how can i clear that buffer without restarting the script?
Deleting and re-creating the controls didn't help, deleting the entire gui (and controls) and re-creating it didn't help also.
The only thing that is working is restarting the script.
PS: If you need a working example i can add it to this topic, just let me know. It is not rocket science, i just create the controls and show/hide them with a while loop and 3 buttons.
How i can write data from txt to +3 Input?
In txt i have:
Michael XYZ, 21, Boston
Olex Marshal, 17, Boston
Alex XYZ, 19, Boston
And now i want load that data to input in autoit.
Name y.o city
[ Input1] [Input2] [Input3]
[ Input4] [Input5] [Input6]
[ Input7] [Input8] [Input9]
After load should be:
Name y.o city
[Michael XYZ]  [Boston]
[ Olex Marshal]  [Boston]
[ Alex XYZ]  [Boston]
FileOpen("Test.txt",0) $aas = GUICtrlSetData($Input1, FileReadLine("Test.txt",1)) FileClose("Test.txt") But its wrong. ofcourse its load all to input 1. So now how do you load this data directly into each input separately? The comma stop sign is here. Each line is a new person
