List of Locked Commands

3 posts in this topic

Hello, I've written a script for my company that goes to one of our partner's websites (through Internet Explorer) and downloads database information for another of our departments to look through.

It works great... except when the computer is locked.

It's nothing more than a bunch of "WinWaitActive" and "Send" commands, all navigation is done through the keyboard.

I've searched these boards and apparently there are certain commands that work while locked.

Is there a list of these commands? Perhaps recommendations on how to do this?

(I've found mention of a third party program to unlock the screen, but as I'm in a corporate environment I'm not sure if this would be allowed.)

Any help or direction on where to look would be appreciated.

Have you looked into using the _IE functions in the IE UDF? It may be possible to get around some of the WinWaitActive and Send commands.

The AutoIt Help guide, while very very useful for coding, doesn't give any indication of what works and what doesn't.

I'd hate to have to rewrite the thing from scratch, but I'll look in to these.
