$US25.00 FireDaemon Zero (Session 0 Viewer)

Key Features

FireDaemon Zero is an application for Microsoft Windows that allows you to easily switch back and forth between your logged in Windows desktop session and Session 0.

Since the release of Windows Vista and Windows 2008 interactive Windows services (ie. those with a console or GUI component) have been forced to run in the isolated desktop Session 0. The only way to interact with your interactive services on Session 0 was to switch desktop via the Interactive Services Detection Service applet. This method has a variety of limitations and is disabled in Windows by default. FireDaemon Session 0 Viewer is a complete standalone product and drop in replacement for the inbuilt Windows applet, providing the following features and advantages:

  • Enables interactive services on Windows 7, Server 2008 R2, 8, Server 2012, 8.1, Server 2012 R2, 10, Server 2016 and Server 2019
  • Starts the Interactive Services Detection Service providing a System Tray Notification Area applet across all user sessions allowing you to switch back and forth between your logged in session and Session 0 by just double clicking the Session 0 Viewer applet icon
  • Provides the ability for a user to "steal" Session 0 control from another user
  • Provides the ability for a user to "kick" a user off an orphaned Session 0 session
  • Redraws the desktop and windows of applications running in Session 0 correctly avoiding artifacting especially when switching to Session 0 via RDP
  • Allows you to switch to Session 0 indefinitely with no auto-logoff timeout
  • Starts a custom minimisable Task Bar on Session 0 that allows you to find and bring to front applications running on Session 0
  • Eradicates the default nagging desktop popup "warning" you that applications are running on Session 0
  • Provides Start Menu shortcuts allow you to simply rollback to the default Windows Interactive Services Detection Service
  • Requires FireDaemon ZeroInput on Windows 10, Server 2016 and Server 2019
  • Works seamlessly side by side FireDaemon Pro and FireDaemon Fusion
  • Facilitates Session 0 desktop switching via regular Windows, OS-X and Linux RDP/RDC clients, TeamViewer, VNC and other remote control products
  • Available as a retail product with volume license pricing, integrator product with unlimited redistribution pricing and as a pay-as-you-go product with volume licensing pay by the month pricing
  • Software Assurance and Technical Support annual subscriptions available. Subscriptions can be cancelled any time
  • IMPORTANT: please ensure you understand additional Windows 10, Server 2016 and Server 2019 specific limitations as imposed by Microsoft prior to trialing or using this product.
