Executing an .hta (Not in a OSD)

Recommended Posts

Hi All :)


I want have a TS (Task Sequence)(is running when the user is logged onto the system, not in OSD(OS Deployment)) with several steps, one if them being a .hta file that warns the user that a change in software is comming and they need to close down Outlook.

My problem is that the TS gets stuck when it reaches the .hta file step, just hangs untill I shut it down by force (kill the process).


My setup:

  • "Run Command Line"
  • Command Line: "Name of file"
  • Tick in Package: "Package containing the file"
  • In Otions the default Success codes are set til 0 3010 (have no idea on what this is used for?)

it's not hanging it's actually running the HTA as a system process so you don't see it, the user doesn't see it. If you open task manager and look at the processes do you see MSHTA.exe running ? kill it and the task sequence will continue,


use serviceUI.exe instead to display the hta

I'll have a look tomorrow for that :)


I just don't get it,the same type of hta is running fine in the osd,what's the difference?


What do you mean by using serviceUI,how does that work?
