Need assistance on Microsoft 10 Pro on a security program RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good morning,

    Since I am not able to use any of the features of Windows Hello on my Surface 3, I would like Microsoft to tell me how I to use BT Proxy (http://btprox.sourceforge.net/) to secure my device when my cellphone is away. 

    To my understanding "C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation" will execute a controlled lock, however this command does not appear to work directly with BT Proxy. So, how do I make this work? I only ask because you have my money.

    Thank you

    Try:
    cmd /c c:\windows\synative\rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation
     
    Or move your idea of "auto-lock" to the scheduler and run the command on
    an event. Take a look at the eventlog \Microsoft\Windows\Bluetooth to
    identify the ID of disconnecting the device.
     
    Depsite of that I would not recomment to use bluetooth for lock down,
    just because the range of BT sending is to big.

  • Hi Thisisatestofthedisplaysystem,

    "Since I am not able to use any of the features of Windows Hello on my Surface 3"
    Windows Hello feature is based on biometric. Only Surface Book or Surface Pro 4 supports this feature.

    As for using BT Proxy. Considering BT Proxy is a third party product, we are not familiar with the it. It is recommended to ask for help from the third party support. They are more familiar with this product and they may have more resources to help you.

    Best regards

  • Thanks Mark. It would be nice if Microsoft could offer a cheap upgrade to allow older Surface tablets to become compatible with Windows Hello and use its features. I just need something I can automatically lock up when I'm "in-the-zone" and need to break without thinking.
