I am putting together a computer lab in a small private school and we need a way to prevent computers from starting up unless a "key" program is running on a file server. The lab is networked using ethernet and all systems are running Windows ME (even the server is running ME). I need development of the client program and the server program. Only a command line interface is necessary. If the workstation is started and the key program is not running on the server the users will get a message saying that the "Network is not available" and should not be able to do anything but turn off the machine.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. 2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request. 3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.
