VMWare question

6 posts in this topic

First of all I would like to say hi to you guys !

I really find your tool very usefull . My question is the following :

- i automated a task on some of my computers , but my scripts take "control" of the keyboard and mouse , so the computers aren't very usable while the script is running

- would it be possible to run the script in VMWare , so that the original computer is still usable , and the task gets done in VMWare ?

I'm sorry for my english . I hope you understand what I meant to say .

off course you can run your script from a virtual machine :)

But after the virtual machine loses focus ( I switch back to my desktop ) , will the script still continue to run ?

Of course it will, the virtual machine is independant of your desktop.

You could also try looking into Control functions like ControlSend and ControlClick, those work minimized so you wouldn't need a VM. But if you do pixel detection this is unfortunately not an option.
