The Nintex RPA LE Unlocker installs a DLL file that allows Nintex RPA LE to use the Unlock action to unlock the machine if it is locked (for example, if a user presses CTL+ALT+DEL to lock their PC for security reasons).

Using the Unlock action, you can:

  • Periodically check a computer to ensure that it is online.
  • Unlock a computer as a troubleshooting step.
  • Unlock a computer at a predetermined time.
  • Unlock an idle computer in preparation for running a botflow.

The Unlock action can only unlock a locked computer, such as a computer that is set to automatically lock after a set period of inactivity. It cannot perform the initial log in to the computer.
