[THIN] Re: Anyone know T5700 terminals well?

No, these are apps actually installed on the terminal itself. We have
bespoke utilities to handle data scanners, label printers etc. Each is only
a couple of hundred Kb so local storage isn't a problem. The terminal is set
to autologon with a local user account.

Since yesterday I've managed to create a local account that seems to work.
As far as I can tell it's identical to the "normal" user account so I may
just end up using that one instead and dumping the standard account.

Hello Angus,

A couple of questions:

1. "The problem I am having is that the locally installed apps refuse to
run
from shortcuts at login when a standard use login is used" - Are these
apps installed on the terminal servers?
2.  The shortcuts you created; are they shortcuts to start a terminal
server session and open a specific application, or are they the
shortcuts to start an application once the user has logged into the
published desktop?
3. What is the exact error message you are receiving?
4. How much disk space do you have on your thin clients?  With the EWF
disabled, you can use up disk space very quickly.  Are users logging in
as themselves or are you using a generic user account on the thin
clients?  

Cole.

I'm setting up a T5700 as a master image for a deployment we have coming
up.
The terminal has several apps installed locally plus a thin client
desktop.
The problem I am having is that the locally installed apps refuse to run
from shortcuts at login when a standard use login is used, instead
giving me
the standard XP message about not having sufficient security permissions
to
run the app. After a few attempts however, the apps suddenly become
available and work properly. If I login as the local administrator, the
apps
run straight away with no problem. If I configure the user account as a
local admin, the apps still refuse to run. The EWF is disabled as the
local
apps need to write to ini files and the like.

Does anyone know anything obvious I might be missing.
