I have a script to open WinSCP and login to a saved session.  The steps to select the session and click the Login button works great if running the task manually.  If running with a schedule, the window opens, but only processes the send keystroke tasks without actually sending them.

Anything that can be done differently in the task?

Hi Laurie,

Which version of AutoMate (or BPA) are you running?

Cam you copy all of the task steps to the clipboard and paste them into a reply after pressing the Attach Code button?

Here is the part of the code that is not working, except when run manually - connected via UVNC or RDP.




Task Steps: (Right click, Select All, Copy to copy to the clipboard. Steps can then be pasted into the AutoMate Task Builder)

Hi Laurie,

What if you use Wait for Window steps before the username and password prompts? You may also have to use the 'Focus found window' checkbox option in the Wait for Window step.

Your task may simply be getting ahead of itself when you run it outside of the Task Builder.
