Before login or afterwards?
I have got 100 computers, when they log on I want a message box to come up, is their any kind of software which doesn't involve writing scripts.
Before login or afterwards?
Can i ask why you don't want to use a script?
I dont have time to do it
What do you want it to say, i can do it for you if you like?
Thank you for your reply, is there any software which is free, and easy to deploy, i'm only 16 years old, and I am very interested to learn these things, hope you will help. Thanks again.
I want to learn it for myself, can you provide any information for me?
I do like my scripts so I will show you this and if you find software then you can pick.
This is the code for the script
It is .VBS format and it will automatically disappear in 60 secondsCode:on error resume next Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell") objShell.Popup "This is the message", 60, "Title" Wscript.Quit
If you want to break a line use this:
so a box with 2 lines will look like this:Code:& VBCR &
If you get stuck let me knowCode:on error resume next Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell") objShell.Popup "This is the message" & VBCR & "This is line 2", 60, "Title" Wscript.Quit
thank you, I will play with it
If you can find the software as well i would also give that a go.
the other thing you can do in a script is launch a web browser - this can connect to (eg) an intranet page which gives you scope to put almost anything on the screen. Having got the page launching at startup it's then easy to change what it shows because you just edit the web page you don't have to touch the script. This code will create a window 1024 x 768 and take it to the web page http://server/page.htm
Code:Set oIE=createobject("internetexplorer.application") Do While (oIE.Busy) Wscript.Sleep 250 Loop oIE.width=1024 oIE.height=768 oIE.left=0 oIE.top=0 oIE.visible=true oIE.navigate "http://server/page.htm"
good script there, if the thanks worked i would give you one.
using group policy as suggested earlier is the simplest method...
There are a number of script fans - I'm not one of them (and I used to be a programmer!). Personally, I only use script if I HAVE to. Some systems seem over-loaded by them making it a nightmare fore Techs other than the one that originally decided to have them.
Believe me, after more than 20 years in IT... there is more to life than scripts and there is often a better way of doing things!
Well said. ;-) I never use scripts - no need at all. The easiest way to do the message at log on is to use the Group Policy, nice and simple and that is what they are made for. Why script something from scratch when someone has already included a feature to do it for you?
Go for the Group Policy Tabby! I am 16 as well and trust me, policies are much easier than scripts!
