You create the buttons in control panel - general settings - machine actions.

  • As Smal says, you can add it as a machine action. Just figure out how to launch it from the command line and use it in the machine action. You can then use KBOX variables for IP or hostname. Post it here if you have trouble.
  • I've tried
    C:\\Program Files\\ScreenConnect Guest Service (62bdcc61e410df64)\\Elsinore.ScreenConnect.WindowsClient.exe KACE_HOST_NAME
    no success. I'm not finding the right exe or redirect to launch the application.
    • my guess is the passing of the ( ) are the problem in the path name
  • Got it to go to the web page. It's a java based app so the machine action gets pointed to the http:\\nameofserver:port

in 5.4, on the inventory list, you will see the actions drop down instead of icons. The good news is this means  you can create many actions where you have 2 actions/ icons before. 

But in any version "machine actions" is searchable in the documentation (http://www.kace.com/support/resources/documentation) and will yield how to configure and use them.

  • Screen Connect is the only one I cannot seem to get to work.
