On Windows 7, text for a "Display Message" action shows as a balloon tip for 5 seconds, regardless of how long it is configured for in the action.


This is fixed in version 11.2.1 - see KB 7010042 "ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://support.microfocus.com/kb/doc.php?id=7010042

From ZCM 11.2.1 onwards, the time is no longer selectable, it is fixed at 15 seconds


This is an issue with the way that Windows 7 interacts with .NET, and ignores the time setting.
