Kiosk provisional package for a perspective shortcut


I am trying to make a provisional package to only allow a few apps on a windows 10 computer kiosk. I am using a shortcut to my perspective project. However, it keeps giving me an error and won’t open the workstation. What do I need to do to get this to work?

My xml file allows the perspectiveworkstation.exe file and includes the shortcut link to the project.

I think we’re struggling with terminology here.

  1. What’s a “provisional package”?
  2. You are using a shortcut in your Perspecitve (capitalised) project. See 4 below.
  3. It keeps giving you an error. What is the error message?
  4. “It won’t open the workstation.” Do you mean that the shortcut won’t run perspectiveworkstation.exe? Show the code of the XML file and format it using the </> code formatting button.
  1. Sorry, I meant provisioning package. It allows me to configure settings for other users on Windows.
  2. Yes, I am using a shortcut to my Perspective project.
  3. The error message is a popup with the title “Workstation”, “An error occurred while starting the application. Run with --I4j-debug to generate a log file.”
  4. The shortcut will not open the exe file.
    here is the XML code.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
