SMS app can't receive messages before it is first time launched.

    Question

  • Dear all,

    A SMS app should be activated from the very beginning or users cannot receive their messages forever.  Under such circumstances, if users do not know that such app should be activated at the first time, they may consider as if they do not have any incoming messages.

    Have any method can active the app by default?

    Thank you.

  • Hi BRN_H,

    I also consulted the experts in this area and get confirmed that there is no way to accomplish this. The application must run first to register the background task.

    OEMs and admins can sysprep systems to aurorun a few apps. This is how mail signs up for notifications without the user explicitly running it. If you can go in this way, I suggest you to use TechNet forum to get more detail information http://social.technet.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/categories/

  • Hi Min,

    It looks like mail or OneNote, but it need user to launch app first time. If user never launch this app, he will lose some messages.

    So have any method can do this thing?

    Thank you,

    BR.

  • Hi BRN_H,

    The user have to launch this app first, unless the app is baked into sys image by OEM/System Admin and start automatically.

  • Hi BRN_H,

    Since it's an option of OEM/System Admin instead of a developer issue, we suggest you to post a thread at Technet forum for more information.
