windows home server and send commands

this might be a little out of the scope of these forums but here it is.

im trying to get a script that uses send commands to run on WHS 2003. i set it to run once an hour. ive tested it in win7, XP and ive run it on the server while i was logged in. im logging in remotly using logmein instead of remote desktop and ive changed the settings to not log out when i disconnect. the server already runs thunderbird and utorrent. thunderbird has a plugin that automatically downloads attachments and utorrent runs a web interface so im pretty sure its not logging out or locking itself when i log out. but it just does not run. theres no AV on it or anything.

i read something about setting programs to run as services or something to get them to work but i can find it again. does anyone have any experience with running scripts, (compiled or not) on a headless WHS box? is there something im missing?

Send doesn't work unless you're logged on, and the computer isn't locked. You'd need ControlSend or ControlCommand or ControlClick to have it work when locked/not logged in.

Also, look in the example scripts forum for running your script as a service.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
