Sikuli not able to identify images in Test Machine [using RemoteWinAppDriver]

Asked by Lijumon

Automation Tool & Test Scripts in Machine A - Test Runner Machine
Application under test in Machine B- Test Machine.

Using Remote Winapp driver, Sikuli is not able to identify images in Test Machine.

 If we remotely connect the Test machine from Test Runner Machine and then trigger the test, Sikuli is able to detect images and works fine when there is active screen for Sikuli.

So for Sikuli to work, it should have an active screen of Test Machine which SHOULD be connected remotely from Test Runner Machine. Even if we have active screen of Test Machine connected from any other machine other than Test Runner, sikuli wont be able to detect images.

Surely not the right place here for such specific topics.

I have no experience with such setups, but the only thing I can say with respect to SikuliX:

When starting a test remotely from machine A on machine B (regardless whatever tool you use for the connection), you have to take care, that the screen stays active (shows the running app's GUI) and does not change to login screen or any lock screen, when you disconnect machine A from machine B.

As far as I understand the docs from Remote Winapp driver, there are tools/scripts/steps to achieve this.
