Message box default reply RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to default reply to message boxes in posready similar to the component in embedded standard?

    Specifically the "Other user is logged in" shutdown box. We have a headless system that can be configured via remote desktop. When the power button is pressed the system hangs on that dialog.

  • Hi Wombat2k,

    The feature you're looking for is probably this:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms940850(WinEmbedded.5).aspx

    The Embedded package configures this automatically, however you can do this manually through the Registry. 

    Another approach would be to use SteadyState to automatically log off the current user when idle or connected for too long.  This may not solve the problem but will at least reduce the chances of this happening.

  • That was the solution I was looking for. Also the first thing I tried. Unfortunately I deleted the spaces in the registry key.

    The log off wouldn`t be a good solution because our service engineers will pull out the power cord the instant they have finished configuration.
