unable to control IE created by a different user via runas

Recommended Posts

I am able to launch IE using a different user via runas successfully; however, I cannot control it via _IECreate and _IEAttach. For example, I log on a windows 2008 R2 server as a user - administrator, then run these:

RunAs("testuser", "mydomain", "password", 1, "c:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe https://test.mydomain.com")

or

Run("C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe")
WinWaitActive("Administrator:C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe","",1)
Send('runas /profile /user:mydomain\testuser "c:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe https://test.mydomain.com"{ENTER}')
Send("password{ENTER}")

The IE is launched and goes to https://test.mydomain.com properly. Then I try to control it using:

$ie = _IEAttach("mydomain") ;mydomain is a substring of the page's title

or

$ie = _IECreate("https://test.mydomain.com", 1)_IEQuit($ie)But _IEAttach returns @error = 7 (No Match) and _IECreate returns @extended = 0 (fail to attach to an existing window).

Looks like both _IEAttach and _IECreate cannot see any windows created by other users.

Is there a way I can do this? Thanks!

You might try using _IEAttach with the embedded mode. This is the same thing you must do with HTA applications. It is a security zone issue,

Thanks Dale. I tried your suggestion:

$ie = _IEAttach("mydomain", "embedded")

and

$ie = _IEAttach("[REGEXPTITLE:mydomain; INSTANCE:1]", "embedded", 1)

But both failed with this:

@error = 7 (No Match) and @extended = 1

The runas command successfully launched IE and only one IE windows running.

Am I missing any other steps? Thanks!

Looks like you are doing it correctly. You may want to try to insure your selection criteria is correct by trying it with something like WinGetHandle.

Other than that, you may need to run your AutoIt script under the same username as the browser.
