Hi,

Does anyone know how to disable the F11 hotkey when using the independent download for the agent? I know how to disable using the deploy tool, but I need to know how to turn it off for users who are not using the deploy tool.

Thanks,
Jen

Hi Jen.

You can change the F11 hotkey in the shortcut properties of SysAid agent that is on the client's desktop. After you have done that to eliminate the previous assignment do the following:

Go to control panel, Regional and Language options, Advanced Tab, and check the box at the bottom "Apply all settings to the current users account and default user profile". Once that is processed, the F11 key should begin to function normally with the previous application. If the assignment wasn't restored yet, then Log out and Log in to Windows or simply restart the client machine.

Best regards

Is it possible to change this by using ORCA to edit the MSI file?

Yes it is. Open the MSI file and go to Property. There you'll find all parameters.

Look here... https://www.sysaid.com/msi.htm

Hate to dredge up an old topic, but exactly what value would one enter into the "HOTKEY" value in the MSI file? By default it is "122" which I assume translates to F11. I'm not sure what numerical value I would need to enter to essentially remove all key assignments... what would a NULL value be? 0?

Is there an easy way to translate these if I wanted a different key mapping, like Ctrl+Shift+F11?

You could modify the register after the intallation HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Ilient\Agent HotKey value.

It works for me.
