To check and log-in windows from AutoIT script

Recommended Posts

I have an requirement to run a script which has WinActivate and other interactive commands and I wanted to make sure the "windows locked" scenario is taken care.

I gone through the FAQ http://www.autoitscript.com/wiki/FAQ#Why_doesn.27t_my_script_work_on_a_locked_workstation.3F and I also tried "autologon" utility recommended here - '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>.

But the corporate security check is disabling the "autologon" each time it auto logs in.

So I am left with exploring "simulated log in" process from the autoit script itself to login after log-off or locked-in scenarios.

Question: As I learn from the above links, log-in/locked screen is just a dialog, will  it work if I try to send CTRL-ALT-DEL sequence from autoit script  or does anyone have a working snippet for this scenario?

Then I suggest you talk to your corporate IT security department because we will not help you get around this. Please read the Forum rules (there is also a link at bottom right of each page) - particularly the bit that says not to dicuss "Bypassing of security measures - log-in and security dialogs" - before you post again. Thread locked. :naughty:
