Automate Windows Logon with AutoIt from Service

Recommended Posts

CaryLewis

Is it possible to use an AutoIt script to send keystrokes to the windows logon screen? How do I obtain a handle to the logon window?

As well, how would that script be run? I would imagine that it has to run as a service. However, when I run an AutoIt script as a service, the service only sees a certain subset of windows, if that service is started automatically and then I log on to the machine. If I start the service once I have logged in then the script sees all of the desktop windows.

Ideally, once the logon process has completed I would like the same script to be able to interact with the desktop - launch programs, etc.

Thanks for any help.
