NALWIN (NALWIN.exe) is the shortcut command for launching the ZENworks Application Window on a Windows Managed Device in ZENworks Configuration Management.

There are various options that can be used with the NALWIN Command that help the user launch the ZENworks Application Window in various modes.

Command List:

1. NALWIN /? – Displays a list of options available with NALWIN in a small Help Console.

2. NALWIN /S – Launches the ZENworks Application in a Shell (or Silent Mode). The user will not be allowed to close the window. The “X” button of the window will be grayed out. The user has to either logout from the machine or kill the NALWIN.exe process from the Task Manager.

This option can be used when the Administrator wants the logged-in users to be disallowed from closing the ZENworks Application Window.

3. NALWIN /C=”Custom Title Message” – This option allows the user to launch the ZENworks Application Window with a Title Message of his / her choice.

For example, NALWIN /C=”This is your Application Window” will launch a console as shown in the figure below:

7. NALWIN : – Launches the ZENworks Application Window without displaying the Splash Screen that’s popped by default (before launching).

    Correct the following … they all don’t do minimized mode.
    Minimized, maximized and normal mode.
    4. NALWIN /MIN — Launches the ZENworks Application Window in Minimized mode.

    5. NALWIN /MAX — Launches the ZENworks Application Window in Minimized mode.

    6. NALWIN /NORM — Launches the ZENworks Application Window in Minimized mode.
