Automating WinXP Unlock/Login?

Recommended Posts

TheMightyRichard

Hi All, new here and new to AutoIT (and to scripting in general). Please forgive my n00bishness.

I'm trying to perform what I thought would be a fairly simple operation. Our lock screens here at work don't go to the Ctrl+Alt+Del screen, they go straight to the login dialog. User ID is already populated with the logged-in user ID, and the cursor is sitting there blinking in the password box. All I need to be able to do is enter the password and click the OK button. Send() doesn't work, and I can't seem to find any documentation as to what the controls on that dialog are called, so I can't use ControlSend() on them either. And of course I cannot run the AutoIT Window Info program when the computer is locked.

Any comments/suggestions/silver bullets?

no silver bullets that are work friendly. But you can replace utilman.exe with a script that sends the keys and hits enter, then clicking the ease of access button would log you in, mine just starts a game so that i have something to do when I am locked out.

TheMightyRichard,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

Unfortunately you appear to have missed the Forum rules on your way in. Please read them now (there is also a link at bottom right of each page) - particularly the bit about not discussing the bypassing of security measures - log-in and security dialogs - and then you will understand why you will get no help and this thread will now be locked. :naughty:

See you soon with a legitimate question I hope. :)
