Benefits

Allows users to control screen resolution on multiple displays. This metabot solves a very common customer problem where the original Bot is resolution dependent and was recorded with a different resolution than the system on which the Bot is being run. If you know the resolution under which your Bot was recorded, then you can switch to the Bot recorded resolution by calling the metabot APIs and then switch back to the Bot host resolution at completion. Otherwise, it would mean re-recording the whole bot for the new resolution which is often impractical.

More Details

Please note : In order to run this Bot, we first have to navigate to the ... “BotStore\DisplayResolution\My Utils” folder, either with the command prompt or with Windows Explorer and run the command line script BotFix.cmd by double clicking on the file. The BotFix.cmd command script will copy the very necessary sDispRes32.dll to the temporary folder C:\ProgramData\AutomationAnywhere\temp on your system. As long as you need to use this Bot the DispRes32.dll has to be in the above temporary folder, no other place. You can clean it out when removing this Bot.
Note: Resolution can only be changed by a physically logged in user (RDP login not supported.)

    one of my ideas to implement this manually with cmd using object cloning to check the Screen resolution because whenever there is a windows update or maintenance update and set to auto reboot, somehow machine changes its Screen resolution. This BOT Helps us to identify the desired resolution before we start our process. Very helpful thanks
