  1. Windows lock screen alternative

    I had not thought of that, and I'm not real familiar with VM but perhaps I should look into it. Currently, all my work is done on my local desktop PC, rather than having something on a server. I do have MS Access forms with timers that kick off certain tasks, and all that stuff works fine with the machine locked. Is there a way for me to use a virtual machine that would help in this scenario, where I could lock the PC but expand my use of macro express by running a local VM session? I actually have access to a 2008 windows enterprise server, which I've never used for anything but perhaps I could start thinking about using it.
  2. Windows lock screen alternative

    Right now I'm just considering the possibilities of what I can and can't do, and I know that locking windows shuts down 'send keys' type functionality, regardless of whether I'm using the GUI. I work a lot with Microsoft Access --- and I'd like to be able to compact and repair the database or call sub routines, things like that. I starting looking into AutoIT, which looks promising --- but I'm stumbling through learning how to use it. For example, I haven't figured out yet how to connect to my main database on my local machine. My main database is opened on the local machine with username and password, and is linked to another local database that contains the usernames and passwords.
  3. Windows lock screen alternative

    Are you saying I can still run some programs even with the PC locked, if I make the programs run invisible (and use controls?).
  4. Does anyone know of any lock screen alternative, so that I can still have my dual PC (Win 7) monitors secure from prying eyes, but yet still run standard macro express functionality? I've done a lot of research, and haven't found any great solutions(winlockr, kid key locker). Basically, I'd like to be able to black out both screens and lock keyboard/mouse, except for a certain combination of keys to unlock. Then I can have macro's running behind the screen. Any thoughts or ideas? I have the latest macro express pro. I also heavily use Microsoft Access, but have no looked into calling macros with vbscript as I assume it's still subject to the same limitations if the screen is locked and you want to find certain windows.
