Some peculiarities of the RoboTask service in Vista+


Operation systems Vista/ Windows 7/8/Windows 2008/2012 Server prohibit interaction of services with the desktop within the user's session. After launching of RoboTask you can see the dialog box from system service "Interactive Service Detection" on the screen that the program can't display a message on your desktop. If you click the button "Show me the message", Windows opens the system session where you can see the main window of RoboTask service. Then, as usual, you can tune the work of RoboTask, edit the task list, etc.

You should run service "Interactive Service Detection" manually under the operation system Windows 2008. In addition the manual rerun of the service "Interactive Service Detection" activates the display of the service message on the screen immediately, or in a few minutes.

In RDC mode under the OC Window 2008 you can get the access to the RoboTask the same way as from the local terminal. You should run service "Interactive Service Detection". But only users with administrative rights can get the access to the service.

If you don't want to get messages from service "Interactive Service Detection" any more, you can just stop this service.

You can also prohibit RoboTask service to interact with the desktop. Do the following:

Open the properties of service "RoboTask service"

Open the tab "Log on"

Turn off the property "Allow service to interact with desktop"

Rerun the service.

If you need to change something in the tuning of RoboTask, allow the interaction with the desktop for the RoboTask service.
