Task sequence to install software while machine is in logged off state
07/01/2016 3706 views
Hi Guys ,
I have a requirement to set up a solution that prevents users from logging in to a workstation while it is logged off and installing software. Not all software we install like this , this is just for a few that can only be installed in log off state. The issue we have is currently some users are logging in and interrupting installations. I am putting together a task sequence that runs (once machine is logged off) as follows
1. Replaces the standard log on screen with a background message that mentions sotware is installing.
2.Lock keyboard and mouse
3. Run installation
4.Restore standard logon screen
5.Restore keyboard and mouse functionality
6.Restore the standard logon screen once installation ends.
I have background , installation commands but I cannot seem to figure out how to hide the the standard log on screen? . Can anyone assist/advice or point me to a script that can address this? Many thanks in advance
