Simulate type not working in AS400 application

Hi,

I am trying to automate a AS400 application to type into it in background.

Using simulate type is not typing in AS400. Can someone please help. Also please note that I want it to be running in background as the screen of the computer will be locked.

May I know what type of studio are you using and license type ?

As of development I am using community version of studio Version 2018.3.2 and using platform.uipath.com for Orchestrator

@mohammedamaan

Community edition won’t work in back ground.

Oh… No alternative solution?

And what about typing in AS400. Simulate type is not at all working.

@mohammedamaan

you can use Enterprise Edition with unattended License to work in back ground. I guess it is the solution.

@mohammedamaan

I don’t know about this application. What kind of application it is ?

After discussing with other team mates they said that to work in background Orchestrator is required.

AS400 are terminal based windows application like IBM i signon

@mohammedamaan

Sorry. I don’t have any idea on this application. But community edition won’t support Back ground automation.

Ok. Thanks

@mohammedamaan you can alternatively try using SendWindowMessage. Also refer this link for an additional information https://studio.uipath.com/docs/input-methods
