Help with WinGetTitle please

Recommended Posts

is there a way to get the last active window title , when the computer is locked i.e. the "press Alt+Ctrl+delete to unlock this computer" massage is active ?

I'm trying to execute WinClose or WinKill on the window "behind" the lock screen and can't get the title.

I tried :

WinGetTitle("")

it works only when the computer is unlocked.......

Why u want to close the "locked" screen window ?


What about Windows without using AutoIt ?It would be the same as driving a car without an steering Wheel!

Andre,

I wrote a "housekeeping" script that executes disk Defrag and Cleanup on schadule (during the night when the user is not working), to execute these programs safely I want to close all the open windows, problem is that a group policy enforces a computer lock when the computer is idle for more then 15 minutes,

so this way when the schaduled task launches the computer is in lock status....

Hi Gilk,

Now i understand what u want.

But closing the windows without any user notify is not a nice way i think.

It could be that someone has unsaved work and u close it then.

Why not run it with the programs open ? Windows is MultiTasking in a way......

Hi Andre,

U are right, closing an application with unsaved files is highly undesirable,

the way I wrote the script is that if the applications pops up the "save - yes,No,Cancel" , then the script terminates and does not close the application.

I'm currently testing the script without closing open applications, But I'm not sure that defragmenting a disk is safe enough with other application still active...

Cheers,

gilk
