Input box on work station when logged on to a domain.
Posted on 2004-11-23
I have been asked by a friend to create an application that will provide an input box to a user logging on to a domain server. The input box asks the user to enter a secret question and answer which is then saved to a file. In the event a user looses their password the helpdesk can use this information to validate the user and reset their password.
I thought this was simple enough but have run into a few problems. I created the application to run in the startup folder for all users, a file holds a list of users who have already answered the secret question so that they are not asked again. Problems are....
1. The application won't run on the server and asks to be installed locally, i assume this is because it requires dependancy files. I wanted to run the app on the server only.
2. If i try to get the users to install the app locally they do not have the admin rights to install it!
Can anyone point me in the right direction or maybe suggest other solutions that i could use? Any help would be much appreciated.
