For this, I use the ZEN2 WSUTIL.EXE tool which still works with
ZFD6.5. The question is if this tool is still supported by ZENworks 7

The Autorun.exe tool from the ZENworks Virtual CD only works when NAL
is running, thus a logged-in user. I need to do the refresh even when
no user is connected.
Many thanks for a feedback !

A: Updated answer.
There's nothing to refresh the workstation helper specifically. Yes "zac ref" does do a refresh, but it refreshes everything, unless you add a parameter
Command: refresh, ref
This command triggers a refresh of the specified type.
refresh [general | partial | bundle <bundleName>]
To trigger a general refresh:
zac refresh [general]
To trigger a partial refresh:
zac refresh partial
To trigger a refresh for a particular bundle:
zac refresh bundle MyBundle
To Bypass the server cache specify "bypasscache" after the zac ref command.
Example: zac ref bypasscache
