Windows 7 Shutdown dialog appears
« on: March 27, 2012, 10:55:38 AM »
Hi

I have a problem using signagecontroller. when it starts (whether at windows start or manually) The Windows shutdown dialog appears on the screen. If I close it, it works properly, but I need it doesn't appears any more.

Starting signageplayer I don't have this problem, but I need to use signagecontroler due to the fact that I want to use Powerpoint.

Thanks

Does this happen before you registered the SignagePlayer to your account or after?

It's been after. It worked properly with signageplayer, and this wrong behaviour has happened since I switched to signagecontroller.

thanks

Symlink for program files in SignageController to fix the multi language problem of SignagePlayerRun:

mklink /J "C:\Program Files\SignagePlayer" "C:\Program Files (x86)\SignagePlayer"

It doesn't work. Just after the player has started, the shutdown dialog appears. As it used before.

It's happening with all the non-english Windows versions, and can be avoided installing english versions.
But as many of our customers have already non-english Windows installed, you should find a solution making the SignagePlayer compatible with the international versions.
It would be very appreciated by us

P.S. I've tried the mklink /J "C:\Program Files\SignagePlayer" "C:\Program Files (x86)\SignagePlayer" several times and it doesn't always work

If you have a non-english windows 7 machine that is getting a pop-up regarding turning off the computer when the system loads the Signage controller and  SignagePlayer at startup on real mode. Just download the file below extract it and add a shortcut of the hidetaskbar.exe to the startup folder.

then reboot
