If required, batch jobs can have access to the desktop. If jobs are allowed to have access to the desktop, a window that is iconified and non-active displays on the screen while a job is running. These windows will only be seen when a user is logged in.

Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 2008 Server do not allow jobs access to the desktop.

Granting jobs access to the desktop depends on your site's security requirements. If jobs are granted access to the desktop, a logged in user will be able to interact with batch jobs that are running, even if the batch job is running as a different user. If security is not a concern, sites where batch jobs may require some user input should configure Batch Services to allow jobs to have access to the desktop. Sites where security is a main concern should configure Batch Services not to allow jobs to have access to the desktop. When you install Batch Services software, you are given the option of whether or not jobs may have access to the desktop. After installation, if you want to change the way Batch Services is currently configured, do the following:

  1. Open Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services.

  2. Right-click on Intergraph Batch Server in the list, and then click Properties.

  3. Select the Log On tab.

  4. The Allow service to interact with desktop checkbox determines whether or not jobs may access the desktop. If you want jobs to have access to the desktop, make sure the checkbox is selected. If you do not want jobs to access the desktop, make sure the checkbox is cleared.

  5. Click Apply to reconfigure the startup parameters.

    The Intergraph Batch Server service must be stopped and restarted for the change to take effect.

  6. Select the General tab.

  7. Click Stop.

  8. Click Start to restart Batch Services.

  9. Click OK to close the properties window.

Exit the Services window.
