Display text message via logon script...

By jtra ·

your help is needed urgently here please...

I have an existing logon script that will bring up a text message (created using notepad) when a user logon. This text message outlines the upcoming events in the company and it is the first thing we want it to load and "STAY ON TOP" of everything else. There are a number of users who have some applications in their "STARTUP" menu...and these applications will also load up upon login. How do I have my "text message" in the LOGON SCRIPT to stay ON TOP of everything else and/or is there a way I can delay other applications in startup..maybe until the user remove the "popup text message" in the logon script. At the moment, when a user logon, the logon script will activate (obvious reason)...hence displaying the company text message....a couple of seconds later all other applications in the "startup" menu (locally on the computer) starts to load up and GOES OVER THE TOP of the "company text file".


Thanks very much for all your help.

Using a VBS script, you can display a msgbox with relevant text. formatting is very basic, but this should work

msgbox "Message Box body Here",64,"Message Box Title here"

save this line of text as file.vbs, and call this to the start menu through the logon script

64 is a VB instruction, and I believe that 4096 is VBsystemmodal, meaning that the system is suspended until acknowledged. try variations or follow this link
