Customizing the Windows logon process

    Question

  • I've had a fairly interesting request from my organization.  They are looking to automate computer user guideline (CUG) process.  

    Some of the requirements are:

    • They want the CUG signing process to be electronic instead of paper.
    • They want the signing of the CUG to happen the first time the user logs onto the network.  
    • When a new user logs into the network for the first time, they want a pretty basic workflow, that walks the user through the signing process. 
    • If the user chooses not to click "I accept", we want the users to be logged off\locked out.


    I'm currently researching the best way to accomplish this.  Are there any third party products that would accomplish this?    Currently, I'm leaning toward using Group Policy to run a program on the user login event.  

    Ideally, I would like to insert steps in the logon process, after identifications/authentication, but before the user gets to the desktop.  

    Any help would be appreciated.  Let me know if I need to move this to a different forum.

    "The following sections describe ways to customize Winlogon in Windows versions prior to Windows Vista.

    Note   GINA DLLs and Winlogon notification packages are ignored in Windows Vista."

    I'm looking to do this for Windows 7.  I'm downloading the windows 7 SDK and looking to see if it has an example in it.  I had issues getting to the sample directly.

    Hi Alex, I would like to know if you ever got this working. I just got a similar request from my organisation

  • We decided to go a different way.  Mainly because of the time and effort.  Additionally the project got put on the back burner.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll have to keep searching for a solution as this request is being driven by very senior management staff in my organisation.
