1498Re: Win32::GuiTest scripts fail over SSH
- Aug 31, 2006Thanks for your response. Yes, I have tried Remote Desktop Connection
before and it works but unfortuantely that is not scriptable. I need
to execute the Win32::GuiTest scripts remotely in an automated way.
Looking at the archives here I did see a very old email from someone
who had success over SSH but there were not much details. If anyone
has tried this and got it to work, please let me know.
