How to tell the difference between a locked and unlocked VM when viewed in VNC VIEWER?

2 posts in this topic

I have created a script that allows me to automatically unlock and login to a VM using VNC Viewer; however, this works only if the target VM is in locked state (Windows splash screen where "Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE to log on" is displayed).

My question is how am I going to instruct/code it using autoit to execute the said line of code IF windows is in locked state only?

Here's my code:

$file = "C:\AutoLog\vmsource.txt" ;VM IDs are listed in this file
FileOpen($file, 0)

Func AutoLog()
For $i = 1 to _FileCountLines($file)
    $line = FileReadLine($file, $i)

Run("C:\vncviewer.exe") ;Execute VNC Viewer
WinActivate("VNC Viewer : Connection Details") ;Set Focus to Connection Details
WinWaitActive("[CLASS:#32770]") ;Wait for Connection Details window
Sleep(1000)
Send("{DEL}")
Sleep(1000)
Send($line);Target VM ID
Sleep(1000)
Send("{ENTER}")
WinActivate($line) ;Set Focus to VM Window
WinWaitActive("[CLASS:rfb::win32::DesktopWindowClass]") ;Wait for VM
Sleep(1000)
Send("{F8}")
Sleep(1000)
Send("d") ;Press D to send CTRL+ALT+DELETE
Sleep(1000)
Send("{ENTER}")
Sleep(1000)
Send("password")
Sleep(1000)
Send("{Tab}")
Sleep(1000)
Send("{ENTER}")
WinClose("[CLASS:rfb::win32::DesktopWindowClass]") ;Close VM

Next
FileClose($file)

EndFunc

I found a solution for my problem with the help of QUSER command using a batch file, with this, I can now filter which machine is locked where the above autoit script is needed.
