Windows Embedded Standard 7 & IE 8 Configuration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Here is one that I'm struggling with. On a Windows Embedded Standard 7 Kiosk installed as a thin client I have IE 8 Running full screen with Applocker & GPEDIT.msc configurations locking everything except IE8. IE8 have restrictions as only browsing on one site and not being able to close the browser.

    I need to be able to to the following:

    Have windows request a password on closing the browser;

    Have IE to open two browsers on two screens;

    Give an administrator access to the file system for maintenance.

    You could use something like a shell launcher that is the shell to the system. the shell launcher will then launch the two browsers on startup. It can have buttons or what ever you want on it to provide back end access to the system.
