Novell ZENworks 7 Desktop Management Support Pack 1 - ZDM7 SP1 Application Launcher (NAL)


Is there a ZENworks 7 AUTORUN.EXE?


Yes. You will find it in SYS:PUBLIC\MGMT\CONSOLEONE\1.2\LIB\ZEN on a ZENworks 7 server.

Will this work with Virtual CD's? The ZENworks 7 documentation currently says:


Create CD autorun files: Select this option to create an autorun.inf file. The autorun.inf file initiates an Application Launcher refresh so that the Application objects included on the virtual CD are immediately displayed. If the user's workstation is not configured to autorun CDs, or you use another media type, the user must manually refresh Application Launcher. This is done by right-clicking the Application Launcher icon and clicking Refresh.

In ZENworks 7, the method that the autorun.exe file uses to trigger an Application Launcher refresh changed from previous ZENworks versions. As a result, ZENworks 7 Application Launcher does not automatically refresh for virtual CDs created with previous ZENworks versions. Likewise, pre-ZENworks 7 versions of Application Launcher do not automatically refresh for ZENworks 7 virtual CDs. Although automatic refresh does not work, users can insert the CD and then manually refresh Application Launcher to have it read the CD.


This has been reported to Novell Engineering and is being checked for being accurate.
