Closing IE with Lockdown manager in Windows 8.1 embedded. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We are deploying Windows 8.1 Embedded with MDT Task Sequence. MDT TS deploys Windows 8.1 Embedded with few Lob apps & google earth. In the build we are running Google earth in offline mode & when google earth runs in offline mode it checks for internet & prompt for a diagnostic test (The user gets a messages if they want to run the diagnostic test, The message has Yes/No button) If the user click Yes then Google earth runs the diagnostic test & displays the result in IE. Now, in our Windows 8.1 Embedded build we are blocking this google earth message using lock down manager & when this message is blocked google earth is taking the Yes value by default & runs the diagnostic test showing the result in IE.

    So, the problem is that when a user launch Google Earth in the build, IE always comes up with google earth other messages are blocked but when we try to block IE using lock down manager entire application gets blocked.

    Is there a way to block IE Google earth page without getting IE completely blocked.

    Please Help !

    Thanks,

    Pranay.
