    BladeLogic Server Automation Desktop Interaction

    Sean Doty

      I have a need to interact with the Windows Desktop when doing an install.  We have a few scenarios where a user/operator might be logged into a Desktop of a Server (directly logged in, not using RDP) and we need to pop up a message.


      Has anyone tried doing this?  Is it even possible?  I tried doing things like popping up a cmd console or starting an application like Word, but when the commands are issues in a blpackage deployment, the job basically hangs and the applications never appear on the desktop.  I expect the job to hang, at least until the application is exited, and I see the process running in the background, I just don't know how to get it to appear on the desktop.


      For this test case, the user that is signed into the system is also the same user account I am running the job with.
