SikuliX and Microsoft MMC

Asked by Ran on 2017-07-25

Hello,

    I have been using Sikuli for a couple years and recently encountered an issue with MS MMC. I read the forums and there is a workaround to get Sikuli to interact with MMC windows/dialogs, and that is to run the Sikuli script as an Administrator.

    While this may work for most intents and purposes, I would like to also use non-Administrators to launch my Sikuli scripts to interact with MMC windows/dialogs. I noticed that there is already a bug filed for this since 2011 but it is set to low priority. Is there any chance that you guys can bump up the bug priority and look into this and see how Sikuli can work with MMC windows/dialogs as non-Administrators?

Thanks,
Ran

The situation has not changed over the years:
Administrator tasks like MMC cannot be acted on by other programs, that do not run in admin mode.

So running the script as admin is still the only solution.

I will close the bug as not possible to solve in SikuliX.

Thanks RaiMan. Silly Microsoft, now we are forced to abandon super useful tools like Sikuli and stuck with MS Windows automation tools to automate MMC apps.
