My post is more architecture related than the actual autoit script.
Currently I have a java tool that makes a connection to a azure Windows VM using WINRM.
Then I "grep" the session ID of RDP and using psexec I execute my autoit script on the session ID of the RDP (This assumes that I need to have already a RDP connection established).
The script runs perfectly when I have a RDP session maximized/opened. If I minimize the RDP window some commands do not work, as for example the Send command.
I do understand that it has to do with the window not being active, even though the script is executed remotely.
My goal is to be able to run the autoit scripts with no limitations, like I was running in my local machine.
One important thing, all the flow is being triggered from a linux machine with no GUI. So that is why, I am using a jar file to start the winrm connection.
So to sum up:
starting server: centos with no GUI
remote server: azure win 10
goal: from starting server, launch autoit script that is on remote server
I am trying to use the example code from
But when I try it I get the GUi loaded then it closes. Is there a new way to load RDP on windows 10/2016 with AutoIT?

I have a bunch of scripts that I need to run on systems that are either accessed from RDP or Citrix.
The problem I have had all along is that if you close the RDP or Citrix screen then the scripts will fail even if the user is still logged into the system you were connected to.
I finally found something that will tell me if the session is still active but it's a command line tool called qwinsta.exe. I prefer not to do stdoutread if there is any other way so I'm wondering if anyone has an idea on how to get the session state for the currently logged in user as this script does but not using stdoutread?
$RunFrom = EnvGet("Sessionname") ConsoleWrite("Active SessionName = " & $RunFrom & @CRLF & @CRLF) Local $iPID = Run('"C:\Windows\System32\qwinsta.exe" ' & @UserName, "", @SW_HIDE, 2) ProcessWaitClose($iPID) ;Need to wait for it to finish before we get the StdOutput values $sOutput = StdoutRead($iPID) ;Retrieve whatever returned ConsoleWrite("Active StdOutRead = " & @CRLF & $sOutput & @CRLF & @CRLF) ;---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sleep(15000) ;Need to disconnect at this point so we can see what happens next!!! ;---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- $RunFrom = EnvGet("Sessionname") ConsoleWrite("Disconnected SessionName = " & $RunFrom & @CRLF & @CRLF) ;After Lock, again get session name and session state and write to console Local $iPID = Run('"C:\Windows\System32\qwinsta.exe" ' & @UserName, "", @SW_HIDE, 2) ProcessWaitClose($iPID) ;Need to wait for it to finish before we get the StdOutput values $sOutput = StdoutRead($iPID) ;Retrieve whatever returned ConsoleWrite("Disconnected StdOutRead = " & @CRLF & $sOutput & @CRLF)
Below is what i'm seeing returned by the script. What I need is just the STATE field.
Active SessionName = RDP-Tcp#0 Active StdOutRead = SESSIONNAME USERNAME ID STATE TYPE DEVICE >rdp-tcp#0 MyUsername 3 Active rdpwd Disconnected SessionName = RDP-Tcp#0 Disconnected StdOutRead = SESSIONNAME USERNAME ID STATE TYPE DEVICE > MyUsername 3 Disc
Active SessionName = ICA-CGP#9 Active StdOutRead = SESSIONNAME USERNAME ID STATE TYPE DEVICE >ica-cgp#9 MyUsername 43 Active wdica Disconnected SessionName = ICA-CGP#9 Disconnected StdOutRead = SESSIONNAME USERNAME ID STATE TYPE DEVICE > MyUsername 43 Disc
I've searched but can only find posts from people with the opposite problem (asking how to get their GUI to display on top of a full-screen app, usually a game.
I've created a toolbar which I use in a work environment, creating the GUI with the following styles;
$hwnd = GUICreate($title, $toolbarWidth, $height, $left, $top, $WS_POPUPWINDOW, BitOR($WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $WS_EX_TOPMOST)) I want it to have a TOPMOST style as it's supposed to behave like the Windows taskbar (which it does in all but one scenario). If I start a full-screen RDP session, I can still see my toolbar and have to close it. Is there a way I can make it appear on top of all windows *except* full-screen apps (in the same way the taskbar allows full-screen apps on top of it)? Thanks in advance. Val.
I have been scouring the forums but cant find what i want so i am hoping someone can help me out by pointing me in the right direction or starting me off with how to build the script from scratch.
What i want to be able to achieve is:
Have the script hunt for a machine that is available from a group of say 4 (how it will know its available i dont know?) When a free machine is found launch an RDP session within the autoit window (scaling the window to fit in the GUI) First off is this possible?
Second, can someone help me get started?
