Stuck at splash screen?

02/05/2015 5135 views

Have created a simple bat-script. And it should run when the computer start, but it stuck. So I need to hard reboot the PC, then Windows start. And the script has running fine (java remover script) 

But why it get stuck ?

I'd say that your script is almost certainly popping up a message box or dialog box on to the "screen" which is expecting user input. What does the log - which, of course, your script write to, right? - tell you?

  • And why does the script popping up message? It should run the script without a user interaction. What log are you thinking about, KAgent.log ?
    • I think I found the problem, works now anyway. I had type "call test.bat" in parameters, KACE didn`t like that, so I left it blank.

      Another question, can I remove the Splash screen on a easy way?
That screen will show when you use offline scripts.  The way to stop that is not to use offline scripts.  I do not see anything about adding the ability to disable this in uservoice, you should suggest that

Can I change the splash screen text? Have looked in my K1000 settings but I didn`t find anything about that.

 believe that is set by the system, but I know where is stores that locally and you can try to tweek the file on a couple of machines and if that works push out that file to all machines. 

Go to C:\ProgramData\Dell\KACE and edit the amp.conf file and you will see a line in it.  The name of the amp.conf file on my machine is different, I am running the 6.3 RC server and client.

splashtext=Dell KACE Systems Management Appliance is verifying your PC Configuration and managing software updates.      Please Wait...


Try changing that to what you want on a couple of machines and see if it sticks or if the system resets it back to the default after a couple of check-in's
