run autoit script in remote vdi

Recommended Posts


When I run autoit script in remote vdi, it does not work when I minimize the window of the remote desktop. How do I solve this problem? I want the scripts to run even when I am not logged in to that machine or minimized the remote desktop window.

I cannot change codes at this moment. so any other advice?

So, your passwords are in the cloud. And nowadays every "service in the cloud" is hack free by strong and secure measures.
Looks like a nice app.

Edit: Running the app and it has a local data source :)

Bitter humor or blind trust?

...  I can think of an other more appropriate option but that would be rude.

..I don't mean to be .. that you're thinking.
In my view, regarding online stuff, I don't trust blindly any of it. I can not know when a heartbeat bug or a breach will occur. And I can not give more examples, as I could get in trouble by just hinting.

I rather have RDP access in house, and as unusual as possible.

What I've done to run scripts on executable programs and click-click the windows, is to have a console user auto-login and run my scripts from there.
When I need to interact with the session, I shadow it.
All this is done in a vm where no one can plug a monitor or keyboard to it, as is a vm.

Maybe you can do this setup, and not even worry that the untended PC rebooted or what not, since the session will always run if the vm is turned on.

My 2 cents  :) 

PS: I even wrote me a script to make it simpler ( https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/files/file/477-rdpshadow-utility/ )
