'Hardware ID' different when run by AutoIt and user

Recommended Posts



I'm writing a script to automate a certain task, which involves entering details like a name and a serial number into a different application (call it 'APP'). These details are related to a 'Hardware ID' which APP identifies and displays. However, the problem I'm having is that if I execute APP from within the script (with the Run command), the ID is different from that which is displayed if I run APP manually.

The only idea I have as to why this is happening is that this 'Hardware ID' is unique to each user on the machine, and AutoIt executes commands as a different user from the one that's logged on. Is that even possible?

I hope this makes sense.

Any ideas/suggestions/solutions would be much appreciated.
