Please add way to set custom shell for specific users from ICE RRS feed

  • Question

  • If you read Sean Limings book, Professional's Guide to Windows Embedded Standard, chapture 7, you know how to assign a custom shell to a specifc user.
    This is done by setting the registry key:

    HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
    Value Name: Shell
    Value: <path to exe to run>

    But this value has to be set after the installation is done for each user. (= not very elegant)

    It would be great to be able to set this from ICE directly,
    perhaps as a node under UserAccounts -> LocalAccount
    Example:
    <UserAccounts>
                    <LocalAccounts>
                        <LocalAccount wcm:action="add">
                            <Password>
                                <Value></Value>
                                <PlainText>true</PlainText>
                            </Password>
                            <Name>Admin</Name>
                            <DisplayName>JDAdmin</DisplayName>
                            <Description>JDAdmin</Description>
                                    <Shell>explorer.exe</Shell>
                            <Group>Administrators</Group>
                        </LocalAccount>
                        <LocalAccount wcm:action="add">
                            <Password>
                                <Value></Value>
                                <PlainText>true</PlainText>
                            </Password>
                            <Name>JDUser</Name>
                            <DisplayName>JDUser</DisplayName>
                            <Description>JDUser</Description>
                                    <Shell>C:\JD\JD.exe</Shell>
                            <Group>Users</Group>
                        </LocalAccount>
                    </LocalAccounts>
                </UserAccounts>

  • I agree! This would be a great setting to have.
