Script to open VPN Anyconnect and Send Keys to it

Hi All,

I'm using Visual Studio to create an SSIS package with a script task using script language Microsoft Visual Basic 2012 to open the vpncli.exe and connect to a server "000.00.00.000" with username "TestName" and password "TestPassword"

I'm having difficulties in sending keystrokes to the app, the app looks like dos. For example the steps that I put in is as follows:
Open vpncli.exe
>connect "000.00.00.000"
{enter}
"TestName"
{enter}
"TestPassword"
{enter}

I need this script to automate my login.

Regards

What i use with PowerShell is this (works for x86 machines this way):
Add-Type -Assembly System.Windows.Forms

Push-Location 'C:\Programme\Cisco\Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client'

Start-Service vpnagent | Out-Null
Start-Process 'vpncli.exe' -Argumentlist 'connect 000.000.000.000'
sleep 3
'', 'TestName', 'TestPassword' | % {
  sleep -m 100
  [Windows.Forms.SendKeys]::SendWait("$_{ENTER}") 
}
