Guess I learned something new.
A few years ago when I was looking at automating a GUI application, I got lost with the documentation of Win32::GuiTest. Doing some Google searching, I came across AutoIt gave that a shot. Then I hit the issue that you're hitting. So I tried looking into Win32::GuiTest again. The docs made more sense, but I still hit the same issue with using Win32::GuiTest.
Anyways, I thought I would hit AutoIt's web site to see if they had any information about this type of scenario and found the following in their FAQ: Why doesn't my script work on a locked workstation?
They provide more information about what is happening and offer some alternatives. I tried looking into the documentation of Win32::GuiTest to see if I can find the equivalent functions. I'm not sure if Win32::GuiTest exposes those functions or not.
On one hand, if the information in the AutoIt FAQ is correct, there is a glimmer of hope for what you are wanting to do. On the other hand, I'm not sure I know how to advise you to apply those alternatives from that FAQ in your Perl script using Win32::GuiTest.
