Hello,

Thank you for patiently waiting. Assuming that you had set the password for your application in Configuration>>Applications List and wanted to use Start Screen as your start page, would reproduce the result of opening an application without the password being required. In order to use this feature, you cannot choose Chrome as your browser choice. This will not happen if chose Desktop or Metro IE SKin start pages.

The information provided below are considered as-is and without further support:

Read the following link and copy the steps in creating your *.html page. You do not need the steps to activate payment devices in the description.
http://devblog.provisio.com/post/2017/03/13/Charging-for-Applications-Started-from-the-SiteKiosk-Windows-Start-Screen.aspx

You will need to replace this line:
SiteKiosk.ExternalApps.Run("C:\\Windows\\notepad.exe", true);

With this:
SiteKiosk.ExternalApps.Item(1).Run(false);

The “(1)” indicates that it is the first program in the list of allowed applications in SiteKiosk. That can be changed accordingly if there is more than one application.

I provided this link in case you are curious about using the classic object model with Chrome: http://devblog.provisio.com/post/2018/03/20/Using-the-Classic-SiteKiosk-Object-Model-in-SiteKiosk-Windows-Chrome-Browser.aspx. Just a reminder the execution call [Run()] does not work with Chrome.

Best regards,
Andre.
