Anyone have any suggestions on a web base like solution to autopopulate a username/password box on a web page that pops up prompting for a username/password? I'm looking for a solution where you're not installing a tool on the machine, but that uses an existing technology such as having the web page launch a WSH or JS/VBS file...

Who owns the web site being accessed? Is it IIS or non-MS? Is it running the web site in Anonymous, Basic or Integrated authentication mode? Are the clients using MS/IE or Netscape/Mozilla/Firefox/etc? It might help to describe your environment a bit.

Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.

Depending on what kind of server is running this web page, you MAY be able to add a username and password as browser variables.

Maybe something like "http://www.YourTargetSite.com/Login?Username=Blah&Password=Blech" (the AppDeploy editor word-wrapped it, but the text is MEANT to be one line).

I DO NOT suggest this, because:

1) you have to KNOW the names of the variables, AND

2) you will be sending this information in clear-text - so it's VERY hackable.

You might be able to use KIX Scripts methods: SendKeys and OnFocus to fill in the required entries in appropriate boxes.

VBScript also has SendKeys but i haven't come across OnFocus () which lets you focus on a particular Window
