Running AutoIt script on remote machine

8 posts in this topic

Hello, have just created and compiled a script that does a load of button presses and the like on an application that i use, which works perfectly on my machine.

However, when i try and run this program on my server machine, and don't have a remote desktop connection open on the account I'm running it as, it won't run.

Is there any way round this? I'm guess it's because there's no window to load the application windows up, and thus my script doesn't click on the appropriate buttons etc.

Some help much appreciated!

Cheers,

Tom

I was using that command... just changed it over and think it's working now... I'll be able to tell in the morning :whistle:

Works fine when i'm remote desktopping into the account i'm running the script on... was so close to automating this damned thing!!

Thanks for the help, you're a star...

You're not using WinWaitActive are you? Because that only works when a window can become active. Try WinWait instead.

I would like to know if you got it to work, i am in the same dilema, created a script to automate interaction with an IE page, but it's not working if there is no Interactive display with the PC.

Ok so this didn't work at all, i still need to have the window open and active to be able to do things. Removing that line meant my program waited forever, as needed the window active to be able to do the Send() stuff i was doing.

Guess the answer is to change to ControlSend(), but i don't know how to use ClassNameNN as the determinant, everything i try just doesn't work...

Quick question... does the other machine utilize 'Z:\' drive ? Is it mapped on both machines ?
