[wpkg-users] Windows 7 (and windows XP) : a method to run wpkg at shutdown

Windows 7 (and windows XP) : a method to run wpkg at shutdown


(sorry for my basic english...)

Firstly, the actual option run at system shutdown  of wpkg  client is 
not compatible with  windows 7.


Secondly, windows 7 systematically kills wpkg service after 10 minutes.

My solution :  i don't use wpkg service, i call directly wpkg.js  with a 
simple script at shutdown !

Explanation of method in 5 steps :

*** Step 1 ***  (increase to 30 minutes the gpo script timeout)
with  gpo  : Computer Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ System 
\ Scripts

Maximum wait time for Group Policy scripts = 1800

--- OR ---

with a registry script :
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
MaxGPOScriptWait=dword:0708

*** Step 2 ***  (increase  to 30 minutes gpsvr service timeout for  
windows 7)

with a registry script (launch at startup) :
 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\gpsvc]
PreshutdownTimeout=dword:1b7740

*** Step 3 *** (display script during shutdown)
with  gpo  :
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon
Run shutdown scripts visible = Enable
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System
Verbose vs normal status messages = Enable

 --- OR ---

with a registry script :
 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
HideShutdownScripts=dword:
 VerboseStatus=dword:0001


*** step 4 *** (create and secure the user account wpkguser )

Create a user account wpkguser (on domain  or directly on the server)

All shares \\192.1.1.2\wpkg$, \\192.1.1.2\tools$, \\192.1.1.2\sotware$  
must be read only for user account wpkguser.


If necessary, disable windows logon for account wpkguser by using a 
script logon like this logoff.bat :

@echo off
shutdown /l /f nul

*** Step 5 *** (run this script at shutdown with a gpo OR  locally with 
gpedit.msc)

 Computer Configuration \ Windows Settings \ Scripts \shutdown \ Wpkg.bat :
@echo off
cls
echo.
echo.   ___
echo   i\ _\
echo.  i i  i
echo   i i   Mises a jour en cours : vous pouvez partir.i
echo.  i i  i
echo   i i   L'ordinateur s'eteindra lui-meme.  i
echo.  i i  i
echo\i__i
echo.
echo.
rem (disable mouse : thanks to Daniel Dehennin)
start /B /d %programfiles%\wpkg nomousy /f -h nul
rem (with the user account wpkguser mount network map without drive 
letter)
net use  \\192.1.1.2\wpkg$ /user:domain-or-computer\wpkguser 
wpkgpassword NUL

rem (define the variables use in the packages)
set TOOL=\\192.1.1.2\tools$
set SOFTWARE=\\192.1.1.2\software$
rem (call  wpkg.js script )
cscript  //Nologo \\192.1.1.2\wpkg$\wpkg.js /synchronize /nonotify /quiet
rem (call a script wpkgbaseclient.bat to store wpkg.xml and .log on 
server)

call \\192.1.1.2\wpkg$\wpkgbaseclient.bat


Good test !

Merci, Bruno.

Here you find another method for using Wpkg with Windows 7:
