Lockdown Windows Desktop Classic
Thank you for your question.
Can you confirm that the batch file doesn't need Command Prompt to be open as Administrator.
In addition to above, the user account should have privileges to run the file on the device.

yes the batch can be run without administrator rights by the user.
I guess its just the problem that /C isnt really a parameter unlike -t or something.
Just linking the batch is giving the option to download or to run the batch file, would be nice if this would behave differently.
Kind Regards John
I'm also having a similar problem where I use this command to open up websites in a kiosk mode and it works if you strip the https:// from the link. We have one system where it won't resolve the address without the https://. If I add the https:// then the app that controls the kiosk screen will try to open the page and the page is not compatible with the IE engine that the kiosk screen uses.
msedge.exe --kiosk --edge-kiosk-type=public-browsing --kiosk-idle-timeout-minutes=2 Internalwebpage.com
That is the command added to the lockdown setting. I left out our address for security sake and replaced it with "internalwebpage.com"
I created a batch file that has the command
start msedge.exe --kiosk --edge-kiosk-type=public-browsing --kiosk-idle-timeout-minutes=2 Internalwebpage.com and that works but I get the File Download - Security Warning and have the option to run, save or cancel. It works if I select run. Is there a way to get rid of the prompt?
I tried like several ways and none of them worked. We are running Windows 10 20H2 and using MobiControl 15.4 and the latest agent.
I did not get this to work the way i wanted.
Ive created myself a workaround to run batch files over mobicontrol with a planned task running a specific script name at startup. If you want to run something you copy your batchfile on the device and after reboot it gets run and deleted afterwards.
I dont recommend this for any devices at risk because it could be exploited if any 3rd party would be able to place files with the right file and directory name on the device.
Kind Regards John
