SiteKiosk allows you to secure any Windows PC system (System Requirements
) in just a few minutes. In order to do so, you will need to proceed as follows:
- Step 1: System Setup
General information on how to set up your system in order to protect it against manipulation from the very beginning.
- Step 2: Installation under Win 2000/XP/Vista/7 (System Security Manager)
If you use Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7, we advise you to employ the integrated System Security Manager.
- Step 3: SiteKiosk Configuration Wizard
General information on the SiteKiosk Configuration Wizard.
- Step 4: Choose SiteKiosk Starting Mode
SiteKiosk makes the use of different starting options possible.
- Step 5: Set SiteKiosk as default browser
Running under the restricted SiteKiosk user account, SiteKiosk is automatically set up as the default web browser. The main benefit of this is
that whenever other applications (e.g. messengers) call up an HTML link,
this link will be opened directly in SiteKiosk rather than (as it used to
be) in the Internet Explorer (which would be suppressed by SiteKiosk).
For other user accounts you will find
the corresponding settings under "Start/Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs/Set
Program Access and Defaults". In this menu, choose SiteKiosk as your default web browser. You can change the default browser settings at any time.
- For Professionals: SiteKiosk Object Model
Here you will find all necessary objects, events, methods and properties to program SiteKiosk.
You can install SiteKiosk via command-line without user interaction. Please take care of the following information if you want to do so:
Command-line options that require a parameter must be specified with no space between the option and its parameter. For example, sitekiosk.exe /v"INSTALLLEVEL=1" is valid, while sitekiosk.exe /v "INSTALLLEVEL=1" is not. Quotation marks around an option's parameter are required only if the parameter contains spaces. If a path within a parameter contains spaces, you may need to use quotation marks within quotation marks, as in the following example: sitekiosk.exe /v"INSTALLDIR=\"C:\My Files\"".
Valid properties are for example:
Any password string you might think of.
By default SiteKiosk installs with all plugins. If you set this property to a value of 1, no plug-ins will be installed.
Your installation directory.
By default SiteKiosk will set the SiteKiosk user to protected during the installation. This is the same as setting the value of this property to 1. If the SiteKiosk user should be set to unprotected during installation set this property to \"\".
sitekiosk.exe /s /v"INSTALLDIR=\"C:\My Files\" INSTALLSYSTEMSECURITY=1 DEFAULTPASSWD=mypassword INSTALLLEVEL=1 /qn"
