Is it possible to automate Log off then log on, as an Administrator?

4 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm a novice here, sorry if i haven't done enough search&read.

I found out that log off could be automate with shutdown(20), but not sure how to automate logon after that.

As I couldn't manage to find the command, also I'm not sure if the process of AutoIt's script will be killed when logging off.

If there's a clue or example exists, please suggest.

sysinternals has an autologon utility that installs as a service -- you could conceivably write code to install / uninstall activate / deactivate its functionality.

Addendum -- if you pursue this, please post results or problems / issues -- curious to see what you come up with.

Create these regkeys

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon

DefaultUserName: REG_SZ

DefaultPassword: REG_SZ

AutoAdminLogon: REG_DWORD

Hi, Thank you for your responses, but let me clarify what I'd like the code to do in steps:

After running the script:

1. Open a program, do some tasks, save and close.

2. Log off.

3. Log on.

4. Open a program, do some tasks, save and close.

5. Log off.

6. Log on.

7

8

n

Here, the problem is I don't know how, or is it possible, to have the code continue running to log on, after, the code itself has performed to log off the system.
