Kiosk Mode

14 New Member
I'm trying to setup a music server in my apartment. I want to run iTunes in a kisok mode, which iTunes doesn't really have. Right now, I just want this up and running, but at some point I'm going to also make it a web server.

My current method is to change the shell from explorer.exe to itunes.exe, which allows it to run efficiently and kind of act like a kiosk. Is this at least a reasonable approach? If so, is there any way to prevent a user from closing iTunes once it's running? Any thoughts would be appreciated

I would like to do the same thing but with a different approach, instead having itunes running i would like to have a FingerPrint reader running until i validate an user and then launch another application for a certain data input that once its completed it is going to be blocked again.

If you find how to do it please give me a hint and i would do the same.

See, I couldn't run iTunes in a kiosk mode. I tried several tricks but it didn't work. Then by following https://itunessupport.org/blog/how-t...hout-updating/ I got the proper solution.

I am trying to make a VB .Net Kiosk which will automatically scroll through an RTF file. I can load the RTF file into a RichTextBox but so far I haven't been able to get the application to continuously scroll through the file and start over when it get to the end of the file. Any ideas on how to automatically scroll a RichTextBox? Is there a better way to do this (in Vb.net or ASP.Net)?

Hi- I am QA'ing a kiosk application using IE6 and a touchscreen. If the user 'drumrolls' his fingers over multiple links very quickly the web page does not navigate and effectively freezes. I was hoping there might be a way using JS to stop all touch input after the 1st touch on a link, to allow time for the script to process and then navigate to the next page. (Maybe this is similar to disabling all clicks of a mouse? However I...
