running script as a scheduled task


Recommended Posts

I want to run an autoit script as a scheduled task. Does anyone know if this will work, or how I can make it work? Will it work if no user is logged into the machine?

It works file, I have several instances of AutoIt scripts being run by scheduled tasks. Specifically the scheduled task calls a one-line batch file that actually runs the AutoIt script. I use SCHTASKS.exe to set up the tasks. A scheduled task has no desktop, so don't include any Window/GUI functions or it will just hang.

Well, I'm wanting this to interact with a gui program. Is there anyway to maybe script a login? Or if a user is left logged in, can the scheduled script just interact with the logged in console?

How does that square with this quote:

Will it work if no user is logged into the machine?
