Hey All -
I'm currently working on an issue that I have a couple of questions about. I have a XenApp server that hosts a program called GulfPak. In that application, one feature is to click a button toi launch an email with forms attached. To get this to work, we have published a batch file instead of the GulfPak executable so that we may map a couple of drives and launch Microsoft Online SignIn Assistant which will automatically configure the current user's email in their roaming profile on the XenApp server. The user's machines have the applications published, not the desktop so I'm trying to make a few things as silent as possible
The issue that i'm running into is that when they launch the GulfPak application, the batch files runs (as it's supposed to) but it shows the Microsoft Sign-In Assistant and black command windows before getting to GulfPak. Also - if they exit out of GulfPak and get back into it, since MS Signin is already running on the server (because they are in the same session) it pops up again no matter what when the batch file is run.
I've tried many different switches in the batch files, but can't get it to work 100%. Here's my current batch file:
net use i: \\xxxxxx001\gpsuite
start /min "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Online Services\Sign In\SignIn.exe"
The only other issues I'm having is that when running the script above, a new command window appears minimized on the taskbar (screenshot 1) and sometimes (on the client workstation) there's a balloon notification in the system tray saying that MS Sign-In is "Running in Minimized" or something similar.
One more note... Only about 5 users will require this configuration. If it was different, then I'd run it globally or have MS SignIn always on for all users, but can only have it running for a few.
I hope that this was easy enough to understand. Please let me know what you suggest as I have to get this going today.
