Auto close dialogs in the farm


We recently started having trouble in our render farm due to error message popups.
I think they are mostly related to the Autodesk Infocenter, I already tried a script for disabling it on startup, but that didnŽt work and neither did blocking it through windows firewall.
Since 3ds max starts normally after closing the error message IŽm now looking for a free tool to automatically close the error message popups.
IŽve been googling for a while now, but didnŽt find something free yet, so IŽd appreciate some tips!

Have you seen AutoIT?

You can easily write script in it that will handle it. It's specifically for tasks like this. Of course it works if your farm is on Windows too.

sorry for the late reply, been very busy...
I checked, but I neither have the knowledge nor the time to program something on my own..
Still stuck with remote controling the render nodes and closing stupid windows from time to time...

Deadline does a great job of getting around popup errors and stuff like that. I would suggest looking into it, after we switched over we have not looked back!
