 +====== Custom Profile Attachments ======
  
 +
 +//Available for: Windows 2.1.3 clients and later.// 
 +
 +
 +The Custom Profile Attachments feature enables you to attach any necessary scripts and executable files to an Open Mobile profile. (Previously, these files and scripts would have to be distributed separately.)  Custom Profile Attachments may be used for Custom VPN launches or special actions (such as an Event Action or Quick Launch) that require a separate script or executable file.
 +
 +
 +Custom Profile Attachments will be located in this folder: ''C:\ProgramData\NGC\Open Mobile\<Profile ID>%%\%%Custom''. You can also use the variable ''$$Var:CustomDir$$'' to reference that directory in your Event Action or Custom VPN commands.
 +
 +===== New Windows 2.1.3 or Later Profile =====
 +
 +You should only add Custom Profile Attachments to newly created Windows 2.1.3 or later profiles. Adding Custom Profile Attachments to a profile that you are migrating from a previous version could prevent the attachment from downloading properly (depending on when attachment is added and when the user upgrades). See [[:custom_profile_attachments|Custom Profile Attachments]] for more information.
 +
 +
 +===== Attachment Types =====
 +
 +
 +You can attach any file or script that meets the size limit requirement: 1 MB per file and a total of 2 MB for the folder. Note that there is no way of validating that the attached files function as intended,  and, as a result, you should test any Custom Profile Attachments before deploying the profile to users.
 +
 +
 +You should not use Custom Profile Attachments for files or scripts that stay in use for extended periods of time (or do not have a way of automatically exiting). If the attachment is running during a profile update, it will cause the profile update to fail (because it will not be able to update the file in use).
