I have a scheduled task that runs on my user machines at startup that currently brings up a 'configuring your station' style message in a command prompt window that is replaced by a vbscript msgbox saying that it has completed when it's finished.
I'd like to replace the command window with a small image that is displayed in a window that can't be closed or is displayed floating on the desktop with no frames. The image will have the company logo and the message. Once the task has completed, I'd like it to remove the image when the completed msgbox appears.
When I picture this in my head, it reminds me of the clan screens you get when you load into a Counter Strike Source server.
This is what I have so far:
This brings the splash screen up but you have to Alt+F4 to remove it. Here's the thread I found with this code: Need a VBScript for Open a local Image File by using Command prompt
I don't know how to get it to be closed once the scheduled task completes.
With my current knowledge I'm going to be using autoit to do this. There's probably a better way, though.
