Need to launch a systray exe automatically (streaming)

Created: 04 Feb 2013 | 1 comment

Environment: Stateless VDI using SWV streaming.  When a user reboots their session they wil get a new session on next connect.  Apps then get streamed either on demand (Icon - Online) or pre streamed (Package).

I have a application that has a GUI shortcuts but all needs to have a systray icon started.  The user expects when he logged onto the machine that the sytray exe auto starts without any shortcuts being launched.  Natively the app uses the run key to start this exe.

I have created a simple bat file to start the exe 'Start /d.........' and added as a post activate.  When tested using SWV admin tool the script runs as expected on local activations.  However when streamed this script does not run.  I am not 100% sure when the activate event is run during streamed but assumed this would be after the files are streamed and available to be run.  Is this the correct event to use?

The question is how can I run this sys tray exe after the user logs on without them having to start the app?

Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Are you using "On Demand" streaming or is this app Pre-Streamed?
