11.x vs 2017 behavior confusion

Getting ready for the upgrade from 11.4x to 2017 I have been pouring over
the admin guide and the Zenworks Application guide. I am looking for some
clarification on the app window behavior in how I use it now vs what is to
come and what I need.
Currently I have my app window always open at login and it's set to not
allow to be closed. only minimized. to be able to do this I have to run this
bundle once against all users:
command: %zenworks_home%\bin\NalWin.exe
command line: /S /C="Zen Apps"
In 2017 will this still be valid? I can't find anything in the docs
mentioning how to auto launch window and dis allow closing.

Another feature I read about was the ability for end user to request remote
assistance. Can I disable this feature? I am in a school environment. This
is an unwanted feature. I'm not finding anything about it in the docs.
Probably just missing it.

Re: 11.x vs 2017 behavior confusion

You need to setup a small lab and look at it yourself.
Then try and tweak it and know what to expect.....

Not sure about the "C=" but the /S works in ZCM 2017 Update 1 or later.
/S does not work in Update 0.

ZAPP is launched from the HKLM Run Registry key....just update it once there and you should be set.

Thanks Craig. I will be starting with sp1. Whats the HKLM key you are
referring to? Also do you have any insight to the "request remote
assistance"? can it be disabled?
The /c="Zen Apps" is whats in the title of the app launcher. what ever is in
the quotes is what is presented. now we can brand it through the
configuration instead.

Re: 11.x vs 2017 behavior confusion

ZAPP is launched from

HKLM\Software\WoW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run (Presuming a 64-bit OS...Remove Wow6432Node for a 32bit OS.)

Set any of the desired switches for behavior there.........
