BusinessObjects Enterprise prompt appears when sending keystrokes while computer is locked

Apologies if there is a solution to this posted elsewhere on the forums or in documentation, but I haven't been able to find anything on this.

I'm using Windows 7 and Crystal Reports 2011 version RTM.

The problem occurs when I try to automate my reports using programs that send keystrokes via code like Autoit. Everything runs normally both when running my reports manually and with the Autoit script, so long as the computer is logged in.

However, when I run the automation script while the computer is locked, instead of the prompt for parameters, it prompts me for a CMC BusinessObjects enterprise log in, defaulting to the computer name for the 'System' dropdown box, the same username I use to connect to my databases, a blank password field, and Enterprise selected for the 'Authentication' drop down.

I do not have/use crystal server/CMC, so I'm not sure why it is suddenly giving me a prompt for this system when the computer is locked.

Is there any way to disable the "Log On to BusinessObjects Enterpirse" prompt from appearing when sending keystrokes while the computer is locked?  Does anybody know what causes this?
