HP Easy Shell - allow user configuration changes

Product Name: MT42
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

We use HPDM to capture and deploy images to HP MT42 Mobile Thin Clients with Windows 7 embedded and HP easy shell configured. The enhanced write filter is configured so no user changes can be saved.

 

This works fine for us but now we want allow users to keep their wireless settings.

We allow them to configure wireless networks, but of course these changes get lost after every reboot.

I know that you can work with exclusions in the write filter but as far as I can see this only goes for files and folders.

How can we make sure these wireless changes performed by users are persistent?

For UWF, please follow the steps below.

  1. Add the following path into File Exclusion List
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Wlansvc\Profiles\Interfaces\
  2. Add the following registry path into Registry Exclusion List
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WlanSvc\Interfaces

 

For FBWF, please follow the steps below.

  1. Add the following path into File Exclusion List
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Wlansvc\Profiles\Interfaces\
  2. Disable FBWF, and create a .reg file with the following content:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

 

 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\RegFilter\Parameters\MonitoredKeys\5]

"ClassKey"="HKLM"

"FileNameForSaving"="_Wifi.RGF"

"RelativeKeyName"="Software\\Microsoft\\WlanSvc\\Interfaces"

Re: HP Easy Shell - allow user configuration changes

Thank you ever so much, this works!

 

Do you happen to have an overview for all the configuration items in Easy Shell? (Like display, keyboard, mouse,etc?)

Re: HP Easy Shell - allow user configuration changes

Completing this step on a MT43 is resulting in the wifi being unavailable on sporadic reboots.  Is there a different step to take on a MT43 running Windows10?
