Windows CE: How to execute non-exe's from SOTI Lockdown?

Windows CE: How to execute non-exe's from SOTI Lockdown?

Hi, I have a .rdp file that I am adding as a menu item to my SOTI Lockdown screen as it's required for my particular scenario. The RDP logo will appear in the lockdown so the path is correct but launching it does not seem to work. (ie. tap/enter but nothing happens)

If there was a way to get that working that'd be great but there may only be a solution for my workaround below:

A few threads back I had a topic on launching a script from the lockdown screen on an android device and we achieved that with script://<path>/<script file> for the menu item after placing a .cmd script on the device.

I would like to essentially accomplish this same thing but on Windows CE this time if possible as I have a SOTI script that can be used to launch the .rdp extension.

There may be something simple I'm overlooking so I'm going to go dig through some docs.

 

Thanks,

Ben

I won't be able to test until tomorrow morning but it looks like I can add parameters to the menu item.

I may be able to use C:\Windows\cetsc.exe,filename.rdp to achieve this.

Any ideas are appreciated.

This is solved!

In order to get this to work, your menu item must be formatted like below:

\windows\cetsc.exe,\application\filename.rdp

 

cetsc.exe is the terminal services client preinstalled on the device. The path to your rdp file may change depending on where you place it.
