A New Kiosk Version of Circle Dock 0.9.2 Alpha 8 Has Been Released

  • This is an executable that operates in read only mode and has all of it's menus disabled. It is meant for use on public computers where you do not want changes made to the dock and you want to lock down the system files.
  • The Kiosk Version requires that you change the dock settings and items using the regular version of Circle Dock and then replace the regular Circle Dock exe file with the Kiosk Version executable.

To close the Kiosk Version of Circle Dock, you have to do it through the Windows Task Manager. The source code has also been uploaded for the Kiosk Version and is the same as the regular version except for the parts commented out to disable operations that can result in changes of the dock. You can safely make the Circle Dock directory read only and the dock will easily work.

Thanks, I can see were this would be useful.  At work, we have several computers for 'general' use, so this will be great.

CircleDock has become a godsend at my workplace where we have a lot of systems for our staff to monitor.

EDIT: "File does not exist." when linking to the kiosk version?

Try setting the dock to Topmost in the Settings Panel under General. The Always on Bottom option needs some fine tuning.
