what environment do you use sikulix on?
(os version, sikulix version, ...)

RaiMan (raimund-hocke) said : #2

SikuliX cannot access fullscreen applications (a restriction of the underlying Java features used by SikuliX).

Only applications that run in the context of the desktop.

I have an idea.

How about run fullscreen apllications on PC1 and run SikuliX on PC2.
If you can display screen of PC1 on screen of PC2(eg. by useing Remote Desktop Protocol), SikuliX may be able to detect icons on PC1.

Hi Masuo ,

Your idea worked out great . I accessed my application through a remote desktop and then executed all the Sikuli actions on the remote screen and it worked like magic
Thank you so much
