I’ve been hitting my head against the wall with this one for a while now.

On Linux Chrome and Firefox nodes are fairly easy to setup and start automatically at time using docker or even just a plain init.d service.

I’ve even gotten them to run on windows at boot using various methods. However, none of these methods work with IE. That is, the standalone-selenium-server.jar correctly but IE cannot execute tests even though Chrome and Firefox can.

This issue seems to be related to the IEDriver being unable to send events to the . Unlike Chrome and Firefox which use javascript to emulate clicks the IEDriver sends events to Windows to emulate the user. It appears that when the application is started automatically and no one is logged in Windows drops these events rather than passing them along.

Has anyone had any luck starting a Windows Selenium at boot that is capable of running IE tests without additional intervention?
