Auto IT with IE 11 cisco VPN POP username/password prompt

Recommended Posts



I am trying to automate a vpn pop test  I am able to get all the automation working except with IE11 (required for cisco vpn pop, does not work with ff or chrome)


i am able to request the username, password, store them as variables, then launch the vpn pop address  get past the Certificate warning screen,  then the username and password prompt appear.  I have tried send and controlsend  but they either do not send to that window, ot send to the address bar in that window.


any ideas on how to get it to write to the username and password field would be great.


here is the code so far....  (IE picture attached

#include <Constants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>

$title = "Nielsen - Sign In - Internet Explorer"
    $username_field = "userName" ;that's how it's named in the standard Internet Explorer credentials window
    $password_field = "passwordDisplayed" ;that's how it's named in the standard Internet Explorer credentials window

; Prompt the user to run the script - use a Yes/No prompt with the flag parameter set at 4 (see the help file for more details)
   Local $iAnswer = MsgBox(BitOR($MB_YESNO, $MB_SYSTEMMODAL), "VPN POP Testing", "This script will run the VPN POP testing.  Do you want to run it?")

; Check the user's answer to the prompt (see the help file for MsgBox return values)
; If "No" was clicked (7) then exit the script
   If $iAnswer = 7 Then
      MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "AutoIt", "OK.  Bye!")
 ; progess bar
   ProgressOn("Load Program", "Open Program", "0%")
   For $i = 10 To 10 Step 10

   ProgressSet(100, "Full Load", "Complete")

; obtain users credentials

   $name = InputBox ("/username", "Please enter your Username", "", "*M")

      $pass = InputBox ("Password", "Please enter your password", "", "*M")
      $ConfirmPass = InputBox ("Password", "Please Confirm your password", "", "*M")
      If $pass <> $ConfirmPass Then MsgBox (48, "Error", "Passwords do not match!!")
      Until $pass = $ConfirmPass
