AMT Scripting question

AMT Scripting question

I was creating a simple script to send few keys to connected PC and found out that it only sends lower case keys or convert to lower case. How do I send upper case characters?

Thanks in advance.

Hi There,

I am using script editor from AMT Terminal Tool.


Lower case keys only! Oh dear, I never noticed. I will check and work on a fix right now.

I just checked and lower case works. I added a "sent" command with the string "AbC" with Intel AMT Outpost was running and it works. I also saved the script and re-loaded it and still ok.

By the way, I changed the file format for saving the script from a binary format to a text format in the next version. I still support the binary format, but with the new version you can edit the script with Notepad, etc.

Can you elaborate of give me any hints as to the problem... I can't see it.

I was testing script for entering sign-on credential for a hard drive encryption program which prompts you before OS starts loading. Pasword is case sensitive so when I was sending "PassWord" it sent as "password" and I was not able to sign on remotely. I'm testing this to help users with forgotten password issues.
