AutoIt and VPS

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Why does AutoIt stop working as soon as I disconnect, close the remote connection from my VPS?

Thank you.

The problem is on line 46...

Seriously, with almost literally no information, you expect us to troubleshoot the problem effectively??

How about a detailed account of what you're trying to do, and the code you're using?

I have a simple script for Windows Word and it seems that VPS's don't allow it. No matter what script you have, apparently as soon as you close the connection - the script stops.

Post the script so we can take a look...

#include "ImageSearch.au3"

HotKeySet("{F10}","Start")

$X = 0
$Y = 0

Func Start()
   While 1
   Do
   $Search1 = _ImageSearch('win1.bmp', 0, $X, $Y, 0)
    Sleep(1000)
    Until $Search1 = 1
      MouseMove($X, $Y, 1)
      sleep(1000)
      MouseClick("left")
   Do
   $Search2 = _ImageSearch('win2.bmp', 0, $X, $Y, 0)
    Sleep(1000)
    Until $Search2 = 1
      MouseMove($X, $Y, 1)
      sleep(1000)
      MouseClick("left")
   WEnd
   EndFunc
while 1
   sleep(100)
WEnd

Here's the script I am testing, it works fine, but as soon as the connection is closed, the script stops working

Is the script running on the target computer? If it is, it's probably because the screen is locked or the user session is logged off. You can't use Mouse/Send commands on a locked screen or logged off. If it were locked you can use ControlSend/ControlCommand/ControlClick instead, if it's logged off nothing you're doing is going to work because the programs aren't running any more.


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.

Do you mind explaining more please? How can I fit it into my code? I am using "Remote Desktop Connection" and I just close the connection, I don't actually log out.

P.S. Maybe I am logging out... I press the RED X
