PGP WDE Customization

Created: 12 Dec 2011 | 1 comment

We are using PGP Desktop 10.2.0 MP3 and we have some issues regarding the customization of PGP WDE BootGuard. PGP Universal Server allows us only the customization of "Forgot your Passphrase? Contact IT Department". But there are other text areas we want to customize, for example, the "Press F1 for help" text.

On PGP Desktop 10.0.x - Resolved Issues page, it is mentioned some other fields such as "bgStaticTitleText". Is it possible to change the other text areas, with WDE command-line maybe?
