#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Is it possible to send keystrokes to a hidden dosbox?

When I start cmd.exe like this:

Run, cmd.exe, ,hide

and I´m trying to send commands to it, the keystrokes are only sent

to the currently active Window which is never the just opened cmd.exe =[

Reading the AU3-helpfile while still using AU2 is pretty useless... :)

Though if you change to AU3 you MIGHT fix your problem. :)

However, I do think it might be a problem sending keys to a DOS-window..

I´ve never tried it though..

Good luck..

It's working fine. I've accomplished such a task with ---* and I guess it's quite the same with AU3.
