Recommended Posts

sirWimelef

im triing to use an autoit aplication on a winxp installed on a virtual machine of a vmware system, but the mouse and keyboard actions didn't work.

Anyone else tryed it? i will be glad if someone can tell me a way to do this, i'll have to do a very long process of restructuring the db of the company and i don't have any free pc to do it (well the mine XD)

I have used AutoIt on 32bit XP installs on both Vmware 5 and 6 with no issues at all.


There is always a butthead in the crowd, no matter how hard one tries to keep them out.......Volly

Depending on what you are trying to do, you must interact with VMWare differently. If you want to move the mouse and use the keyboard, just treat VMWare like an application:

WinActivate( "[Class:VMUIFrame]" )
MouseMove( 500,500,25 )
MouseClick( "left" )
Send( "OMG" )

i found my problem :P,we use the "vmware virtual infrastructure client" to manage the servers and wen we make a remote control over the virtual machine it block de "local" mouse and keyboard, now i conect to the virtual machine through the dameware utils and autoit work perfectly
