Manipulating fast user switching / logon prompt

Post by James Hirst » Thu Jan 04, 2007 7:38 pm

Hi guys,

Don't know if this is possible but thought I'd ask...

I'm trying to automate a user fast user switching to another user in Windows XP and also logging in from reboot / power on etc by entering their name and password...

Is there anyway this can be done with Ranorex.

I think it could be work, you can try it with a Windows Service that runs in Session 0.
I would suggest to read the following Microsoft articles:

"How To Design a Service to Interact with Multiple User Sessions"

"Fast User Switching: Issues for Assistive Technology Vendors"

I hope it works for you.
