    Unhappy How to Unlock the system??

    I've used BOOL WINAPI LockWorkStation(void) to lock my system and it is working succesfully and my system is getting locked. It is equivalent to pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL nad then <ENTER>.

    Now I want to unlock my system. But how do i do it? I've passed CTRL, ALT, DEL keys using keybd_event() but it is not working.

    Please suggest me how to unlock my system.

    Thanks in advance,
    Faaz.

    Hi,
    I doubt a bit that you can do that. There will probably be hacks that circumvent system security, but unlocking a workstation programmatically would open door and gate for system intrusion and therefore should be prevented (and I am convinced it is in any sensible operating system). The LockWorkstation() command is uncritical, because there are security reasons where you might employ it, like locking after a period of inactivity.

    Cheers,

    D
