#412 closed Bug (No Bug)

HotKeys do not function if explorer.exe is not running.

Description

Hotkeys work only when explorer.exe is running (a user is logged into the PC).

Hotkeys do not work at the logon prompt (no user logged on, explorer.exe not running).

I've written a screen saver in AutoIt and would like hotkeys to work when just winlogon.exe is running.

Hotkeys do not work if the user locks the workstation while logged in.

This has been tested on XP SP1, 2, & 3.

Wow, you really didn't think about this one at all.

Replying to caplan77:

Hotkeys work only when explorer.exe is running (a user is logged into the PC).

This is simply not true. I just shut down Explorer and run a test script. Hotkeys worked just fine.

Hotkeys do not work at the logon prompt (no user logged on, explorer.exe not running).

I've written a screen saver in AutoIt and would like hotkeys to work when just winlogon.exe is running.

I'm sure this is either a security feature or due to the script running under a different session. In either case, I fully expect this behavior.

Hotkeys do not work if the user locks the workstation while logged in.

Because it's locked? Wouldn't it be rather insecure if a locked workstation still allowed hotkeys to execute arbitrary code?

Definitely no bugs here.
