PROVISIO – Support Request: Sitekiosk will not automatically run under restricted account

But when changing the password of the SiteKiosk user account without using the System-Security-Manager SiteKiosk it can ot work anymore as the SiteKiosk software doesn’t know the new password.
Usually you just have to reset the password of the SiteKiosk user was reset to
provisio
again. Then you should make sure that no other process “systemsecurity.exe” is running before starting the System-Security-Manager again (Task Manager).
Alternatively you can restart the system.

If this doesn’t work you might reinstall the SiteKiosk user account.
– Delete the SiteKiosk user in the Windows environment (–>Control Panel–>User Accounts)
– Open the command line (cmd.exe) and switch to the SiteKiosk Program Files directory (usually “C:\Program Files\SiteKiosk“).
– Enter the command “systemsecurity.exe /uninstall”
– When done, enter the command “systemsecurity.exe /install”
– Exit the command console and check the Windows user environment (–>Control Panel–>User Accounts) to see if the SiteKiosk user is present again.
– Launch the System Security Wizard and set it to “protected.”
This ensures that the default settings of the SiteKiosk user will be restored.

Web Browser Asset – Intuiface

Known limitations

On Windows PCs

  • Certain Websites such as “Matterport” cannot be manipulated using a Mouse. Such websites should correctly respond to touch manipulation. Fixed with the release of Intuiface 6.3.5
  • The Web Browser asset will not be rendered correctly when using Remote Desktop Sessions.
  • PDF documents rendered in the Web Browser can be scrolled with a mouse, but not with touch.
  • Links within a PDF in the Web Browser can be opened with a mouse, but not with touch.
  • If your Composer or Player for Windows is running on Windows 7, make sure you installed all the latest Windows 7 updates to avoid some web engine errors.
  • Other than Flash, all plugin-based content such as Java, Microsoft Silverlight, ActiveX, PDF, Webcam, geolocation & notifications are not supported.
  • If the Web Browser asset is somewhere on a multi-screen display other than Screen 1, dropdown lists will not respond to touch events. A mouse would have to be used.
  • Virtual keyboard input is not possible within Flash animation (e.g. Flash-based forms will not work)
  • The “Open URL” action requires the entered URL to be preceded by http:// or https://
  • No support for proxies or htaccess authentication
  • To permit use of a responsively designed website, the first <html> or <head> tag of the webpage should not contain any attribute. For example, if your webpage contains tags such as : <html lang=en>, the CSS media queries will be ignored and responsive capabilities will not work. This snippet of HTML illustrates the correct approach:
    <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>My title</title> …
  • To adjust the size of a responsive webpage, use the “Webpage width” property of the Web Browser asset, not the handle of the container in Composer’s edit window. Only by changing the resolution, via the “Webpage width” property, will you trigger a responsive adjustment of the webpage layout.
  • Some interactive web components such as Matterport may not work properly when using a mouse while interacting using a touch screen will work properly.
  • If playing, sounds of video or audio content will continue to be heard after closing or hiding the Web Browser asset.
  • Zoom level property is shared between multiple Web Browsers in the same scene (even if the Zoom values are different).
  • The Virtual Keyboard may be displayed for a brief second when loading web pages that contain text input or input forms.

How to set up kiosk mode on Windows 10 October 2018 Update

Do you need to set up a kiosk device? The Windows 10 October 2018 Update makes it super easy — Here’s how to do it.

MAURO HUCULAK

On Windows 10, Assigned Access is a feature that allows network administrators to configure a PC as a kiosk device to serve a specific purpose. Usually, such configuration can be found on a PC in a lobby to allow guests to browse the internet, or on devices that display visual content like digital signs.

When using kiosk mode on Windows 10, the device signs in automatically, and only runs one Microsoft Store app in full screen inside a restricted local user account (above the Lock screen) that prevents anyone from accessing the desktop, switch apps, or change settings.

Although kiosk mode isn’t a new feature on Windows 10, starting with the October 2018 Update, Microsoft has redesigned the experience to make it easier for anyone to configure and manage as single-app kiosk machine.

In this Windows 10 guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to configure and manage kiosk mode to run a single app in full screen with the settings available starting with the October 2018 Update.

How to configure kiosk mode on Windows 10

To use Assigned access to set up and adjust kiosk mode settings on Windows 10, use these steps:

Setting up kiosk mode

To configure kiosk mode, do the following:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Click on Accounts.
  3. Click on Family & other users.
  4. Under “Set up a kiosk,” click the Assigned access button.

  5. Click the Get started button.

  6. Type a short, but descriptive name for the kiosk account.

  7. Click the Next button.
  8. Select a Microsoft Store app from the list.

    Info: We’re selecting Microsoft Edge, which includes additional configuration options, but the settings for other apps may be different.

  9. Click the Next button.
  10. Select the option that suits your environment. (In this guide, we’re selecting “As a public browser,” to configure a device that will be used by guests to browse the internet.)

  11. Click the Next button.
  12. Type the web page address you want users to use for the home page, start page, and new tab page.
  13. Specify the time before Microsoft Edge restart the InPrivate session if no one is using the device.

  14. Click the Next button.
  15. Click the Close button.

Once you’ve completed the steps, restart your computer to start in kiosk mode.

If you want to exit the experience to shutdown or restart the computer, or access an administrator account, you’ll need to use the Ctrl + Alt + Del keyboard shortcut to bring up the Lock screen to access the sign-in screen and power options.

Changing settings

If you want to change the kiosk mode settings, using an administrator account, use these steps:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Click on Accounts.
  3. Click on Family & other users.
  4. Under “Set up a kiosk,” click theAssigned access button.

While in the kiosk settings page, you can change a number of settings depending on the application you’re using.

If you want to use a different app, under “Kiosk info,” do the following:

  1. Select the app, and click the Change kiosk app button.

  2. Choose another application.
  3. Click the Next button.
  4. Continue with the on-screen directions to finish setting up the experience.

If the app has configurable settings, you can adjust them within the kiosk setup page. For example, when using Microsoft Edge, you can change the mode and adjust some basic browser settings.

How to disable kiosk mode on Windows 10

If you no longer need to use a PC with kiosk mode, you can remove the experience using an administrator account and these steps:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Click on Accounts.
  3. Click on Family & other users.
  4. Under “Set up a kiosk,” click the Assigned access button.

  5. Under “Kiosk info,” select the account, and click the Remove kiosk button.
  6. Click the Remove button.

Once you’ve completed the steps, the account and any data associated with kiosk mode will be deleted from your device.

Assigned access on Windows 10 is a feature designed to set up kiosk devices on organizations, but anyone can enable and use it to turn, for example, an older machine into a jukebox or a Netflix-only streaming device.
