Problem running SSIS Package (containing Execute Process Task) with SQL Server Agent

Ive developed an SSIS package containing an  Execute Processs Task  that runs  a file called StartVPN.EXE. This file starts a CISCO VPN connection and contains the following  Windows Script which has been compiled using a Windows Macro Recorder:
Run C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\VPN Client\vpngui.exe
WinWait, status: Disconnected | VPN Client - Version,
IfWinNotActive, VPN Client  |  User Authentication for "myClientConnection", , WinActivate, VPN Client  |  User Authentication for " myClientConnection ",
WinWaitActive, VPN Client  |  User Authentication for " myClientConnection ",
Send, myPassword{ENTER}
The above works fine as long as I run the package manually. When I try to use SQL Server Agent (2005) to run it, the job pauses at the last statement i.e. Send, myPassword{ENTER}. This statement is supposed to enter a password in a dialog box, after which the OK button (or ENTER) is pressed to establish the connection.
Any comments to help solving the above problem will be appreciated.
