ThinKiosk 2.1 Released

This update has been a while coming, thanks to all who’s helped!


New features in 2.1:

  • German Language pack. (Thanks Michael)
  • A nifty clock.
  • CloudGateway Express support.
  • VDI in a box support.
  • Pass through Authentication support (documented here)
  • the offline Configuration tool is now a one stop shop with shell replacement and auto login options.
  • The client details and windows version menu items can now also be removed or moved.
  • Debug mode (activated via admin menu).
  • ThinKiosk can be configured to log users off after the session ends (if you are using passthrough).

Bug Fixes in 2.1:

  • The offline configuration tool now obeys UAC.
  • ThinKiosk is now aware of its browser rendering version and will attempt to fix it on the fly.
  • ThinKiosk has been rolled back to 32bit. This was due to compatibility issues. It is 64bit aware and will handle 64bit seamlessly.

    Still need to find time to try ThinKiosk! This may be a silly question, or it may be one of the RTFM kind, so feel free to say so. But would it be possible, using ThinKiosk to connect to a published XenApp desktop, to print to local printers that require a local pop-up client? We use a beast of a pay-for-print product and I’m hoping to keep its terrible client off my XenApp servers.

    Yep that’s possible, theres a printers module in ThinKiosk. The only concern i would have is that the window may disapear if they minimise it.

    Let me know how you get on.

    Great app! Been testing it for the past few weeks. Huge improvement over citrix desktop lock! My only suggestion would be to find a way to redirect win+L to the session. Other than that it has been solid for us!
