Mouse actions are blocked generally or by the frontmost application.

Asked by Vrushabh on 2018-09-22

Facing below error in Eclipse IDE -
[error] RobotDesktop: checkMousePosition: should be L(998,767)@S(0)[0,0 1920x1080]
but after move is L(571,473)@S(0)[0,0 1920x1080]
Possible cause in case you did not touch the mouse while script was running:
 Mouse actions are blocked generally or by the frontmost application.
You might try to run the SikuliX stuff as admin.

When I click on some button of my Desktop application, it opens another window which is another windows application. I tried all the possible iteration using APP class and mouse/keyboard events but unable to fix it.

Can you please help me to fix this issue. As this is blocking our progress.

Even I tried the same flow using SikuliX - IDE as well and same issue I'm facing. Any help will be appreciated. Awaiting your early response.

This usually happens on Windows systems, where the target GUI blocks mouse actions.

Often it is a solution to run the stuff from an admin commandline.

I have tried running as admin from command line but doesn’t workout. Same issue I’m facing. Please help me to overcome this problem.

--- I have tried running as admin from command line
... hope you did it right: you have to open an admin-commandline with the appropriate context-menu. Just being an admin account in a commandline window is not enough.

If this really does not help:
I do not know your targeted app, but it seems, that it blocks Java Robot generated mouse actions.

Since you use Eclipse, I guess you use Java.
If yes, try with a small test app to use Java Robot to move the mouse and do a click.

Can you help with this problem?
