Since we had a user of this product asking to be able to show more text, I have created a new version of the utility.

This version is a quick update of the old version.

Window  has been resized to a bigger size and it is now possible to specify font size in the XML config file.



Windows XP / Vista / Server 2003 / 2008

Microsoft .Net 2.0 Framework

Windows installer 3.1 (required by the msi installer)

Command line:

AutoInstallWarning.exe "Windows Title" "Message" "timeout in seconds”


"C:\Program Files\Coretech\AutoInstallWarning\AutoInstallWarning.exe" "Office 2007 Installation" "Internal IT is deploying Office 2007, it might take approx. 30 minutes" 30

Remember all string arguments, must have quotes around them if they contain space.

The last arguments is an integer, and therefore it does not need quotes.
