Wyse Thin OS User Defined Display Settings

I am testing out some Wyse cloud terminals. The R10L to be exact. The OS is Wyse ThinOS version 7.0_113. I have a wnos.ini file on an ftp server that configures the OS. Works great the only real problem i'm running into is being to change the display per user. There are 3 options in the display settings.

1. Select best display setting on DDC monitor
2. DDC Table
3. User defined display setting

I choose user defined, set the resolution i want, hit test. The screen flashes and comes up with the new res. The device then wants to reboot to apply changes. After reboot it goes back to "select best display setting on DDC monitor".

Hoping someone here has some experience with these devices/OS. The Wyse support forum looks pretty dismal. Half the posts there are spam.

I have not had experience with ThinOS only Windows XP and 7 embedded.  In Windows embedded you have to allow write changes to the ThinOS.  The terminal would then reboot into write mode.  Make changes there save and reboot normally.  

I would assume ThinOS would be the same way.  If you have a relatively low number of machines this needs to be done on it may be an option but for a large amount it can be time consuming.

ThinOS has no write filter like XP or 7 as far as I can tell. We actually have HP Thin Clients currently with XP embedded and they have been nothing but trouble, hence why we are trying to move to an even dumber terminal. We just want it to connect to our TS environment and do not much of anything else.

As for the number of machines I would really just like the user to be able to set their own resolution on the TC and then have the RDP connection use whatever res is set locally.

Figured it out. Just needed to remove two lines from my wnos.ini file.

Screen=1 Resolution=DDC 
Screen=2 Resolution=DDC

Open in new window
