Information message at logon

Jump to solution

Hello Team,

is there a way to display a message after the logon process? I mean a message like it can be done as triggered task after workstation unlock. I'am looking for a way to display a message for the user to tell them, that they have to give the desktops some seconds time before they start to work. (Because sometimes the users are a bit too fast in starting applications when DEM still does some task in background).

Thanks!

Hi @TomH201110141,

You can call FlexEngine.exe with the arguments -m caption firstMessageLine secondMessageLine ... lastMessageLine

To close the message automatically after X seconds, use -mnX

To allow the user to dismiss the message earlier, use -maX

Out of curiosity, what types of tasks would DEM still be performing in the background that would require this?

Thank you everyone who replied to my question. It work's perfect.

To answering your question @DEMdev  ... Users are sometime so fast or nervous that the try to use the windows startmenu immediately when they see the desktop - and the startmenu is not ready a half second after the desktop appears. Or sometimes the default printer wasn't ready and so on.
