ZENworks Configuration Management 2017


ZENworks 2017 Update 1 and later support command-line switches for ZAPP-Launcher, similar to those supported by NAL in prior versions of ZENworks, but the switches do not appear to be honored.


The switches for ZAPP-Launcher must be supplied to the initial instance of ZAPP-Launcher that is started during a user session.
Supply the switches for ZAPP, after ZAPP is running will not have any impact.
By Default, ZAPP-Launcher is started from the "Run" registry keys.
For Example - To Disable the "Close" option for ZAPP, append the "/s" option to the following registry keys:
For 32-bit Operating Systems -
"ZAPP"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Novell\\Zenworks\\bin\\zapp-launcher.exe /s
For 64-bit Operating Systems
"ZAPP"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Novell\\Zenworks\\bin\\zapp-launcher.exe /s
Here is a Link to the Available Switch Options -
