UFT script issue with Putty

I have UFT script and need to run it in a remote machine. There are 2 parts to my script :
Part 1: automate putty operations
Part 2: check few URLs

The issue I am facing is this: When remote machine is minimized or locked UFT is able to launch putty but not able to type or click on anything in the putty window. I investigated a little and found same behavior on command prompt and other.

So basically, when a remote machine is minimized or locked, UFT script is able to run tests on browsers but not on windows applications.

I hope I am able to describe the issue clearly.

I need to schedule this task remotely, so getting a work around for this issue is must. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Swaroop

I believe you have an option in UFT 12 and later to support remote machines log-in. You can give a try.

 

Tools >> Options >> General >> Run Sessions >> Allow UFT to continue running scripts after disconnect from RDP.
