How to send a message to the logon screen?

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

i try to send a message to the logon screen if no user is logged on to inform a script is running and performing tasks.

it doesn't need to be a message box with a button, i could take care to delete it when finished or else...

at the moment my only idea is to change the background and refresh but don't know if that will work (read about that somewhere here in the forums...)

Any ideas?

THX

Why not have a logon script that checks to see if your script process exists, and if so, pop up a splash text message, and log them out? Not as elegant, but easy.

Yeah, the wallpaper idea comes to mind to me, too.

There is also the Legal Notice Dialog Box Before Logon possibility. It takes effect right away when I tested; however, the registry key might have to be set while someone (or an AutoIt script impersonating a person) is logged in.

There is a good utility called BgInfo that might do what you're looking for.

I *think* it actively sets the wallpaper for all users, but you'll want to test it in the case of someone sitting at the logon prompt.

Another idea, if I understand this properly, is to add the following key as this will display on the log on screen:

RegWrite ( "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\Winlogon", "LogonPrompt", "REG_SZ", "This is the text you want to add to log in screen" )

Hope this is what you are looking for
