Custom shell as user.... default shell (explorer.exe) as administrator...
Posted on 2006-10-20
We have a wbt to set up..... So we created a custom shell "wbt.exe" which the users get when they start into Windows XPe. This is done by editing the registry:
Now the problem is that also as local administrator (this WBT is not part of a domain) we are getting this shell, and we don't want that; the local administrator must have the default shell.
There are several things we have tried to get a normal desktop as an admin, while retaining the custom shell for the user :
- From taskmanager (logged in as admin) launch an "explorer.exe" => starts a windows explorer, not the desktop.
- Re-create the "Show Desktop" button and (logged in as admin) launch it as admin => nothing happens.
We are trying to figure out how to arrange this. Does any of you know how to get around this (start the desktop when you don't have the default shell)?
