How to launch Calendar, Tasks, and Contacts applications

If you have used the Remote Window option in the Remote Manager tool in SureLock Studio, you would have noticed that windowspoutlook.exe is the executable that is responsible for showing calendar, tasks, and contacts windows. There are no 3 different applications. How is this achieved?

Well…all the magic occurs by way of the command-line parameter. The parameter passed to poutlook.exe determines which of the above three will be launched.

Here are the parameters:

To launch the Contacts application:

windowspoutlook.exe contacts

To launch the Calendar application:

windowspoutlook.exe calendar

To launch the Tasks application:

windowspoutlook.exe tasks

If you want to launch any of the above in a device locked down by SureLock, then you must specify the proper parameter in the application entry screen in SureLock Studio. Launching windowspoutlook.exe without any parameter will not do anything.
