AUTOIT3 cannot automate installing softwares while screen is locked

Reported by: zousheng888@… Owned by:

Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Screen Lock Cc: zousheng888@…


AUTOIT3 is a great software. By automating it saves us a lot of time. But here is a problem I want to pose. When I am installing a huge software it takes a lot of time, during which time I tend to walk away and do something else other than waiting beside the computer. However, for security reasons, most of the time I will lock my computer (SHORTCUT: WIN+L) if I am away. I found functions such as "WinAvtivate" cannot be used when the screen is locked. Can AUTOIT3 support GUI manipulations at such circumstances? If yes, what functions should I use? If not, are there any methods by which I can still accomplish the automation task?

Many thanks for any reply.
