Hi ,

I am using  DragTo method to drag and drop the HTML control ("DragTo(HtmlControl control)"), It is working fine when 
browser is maximized and mouse is not moved. But when browser is minimized or script are running  
remotely or system is locked it is throwing error "threw exception: System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: SendInput: Failed. Win32Error:"

Please let me know if you have any solution for this.

Thanks,
Kumar

Hello Kumar,

Any actions that requires moving the mouse (drag and drop) or sending key strokes requires an unlocked desktop and NOT minimize browser.

Telerik tests are not the only types affected by this Windows limitation. You will find this is a general problem with any tool that performs UI testing.
