Net send ? msg ?
I do believe those work ... as they can target users or a specific session. I was a little short on what exactly was being requested of me.
1.) Notify User that an Update is in progress
2.) Shutdown and Update App
3.) Start Application back up after the update completes
I think what I actually need to do is update the RSCD Agent Windows Service to allow interaction with the desktop... I was concentrating more about what can be done within Blade instead of thinking what I need to do with the Windows Services. On the other hand, I don't want other things to start popping up on desktops by enabling this, so I think I have some tinkering to do...
why would you be doing that on a server?
We do have some systems that have applications running on them for users and/or operators. It definitely is not your "typical" solution, but it is what it is and I do what I can with what is requested of me. In the 3 years we have had Blade installed, we have not had any need or requests to be able to do this kind of thing. We have other ways to handle these requests, just was kind of interested in knowing if it can be done or not and/or if others were doing it. I know some clients do use Blade to update "PC" machines, and thought they might have come across a similar situation.

Killing the app is probably easy right? to start it, can you do a scheduled task as that user to kick it off ? I vaguely remember doing that in mcse class to each other’s workstation and kicking of hundreds of freecells that way.
Oh, I really like the concept of having scheduled tasks on those systems !! I too have used them to "interact" with specific users, so scripting them is not a problem.
Thanks for the idea !!
