Start script b4 anything

7 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm new here, a C programmer. I just want to create a program for an computer cafe. How do you make a script that starts automatically after logging on and restricts the user from anything but the script?

THANKS!!! www.thirdy.co.nr

create user and then put restrictions on a user in win. If you want your program to start auto just put exe file that runs your program in user's startup folder.

thanks, but how do you make sure that the user is restricted from doing anything but the exe file only?

Set the permissions of the main hard drive for that account so that no program can be run, except the one script executable. Deny the user from doing anything to a file on the hard drive. Then set the script executable so that it can be read and executed only.

I think that will cause denying of running applications.

I want to create a program that will give a user a new interface restricting him/her from modifying anything but only execute applications. I'm thinking of making a separate folder or partition for all public applications and allow it to save files.

Can you give me a step by step procedure to set xp to just run my AutoIT executable gui?

I think you need to back up a bit. What you are describing is a kiosk configuration. The correct way to do this is by Windows policy.

See technet: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/...p/xpsgch06.mspx

When you implement software restriction policy, the first decision you must make is whether the default security level will be Unrestricted or Disallowed. If the default security level is Unrestricted, then all software will be allowed to run and you will need to configure additional rules to block specific applications. The more secure approach is to configure the default security level to Disallowed, which means no software will be allowed to run, and then configure additional rules to allow specific applications. You can apply software restriction policy to multiple computers through domainbased Group Policies or to individual computers through local Group Policy.

(Underlining is mine.)
