**********************************************************************
*  1. Overview
**********************************************************************

Intel(R) Active Management Technology System Status Service application is a Microsoft* Windows* application that displays a message that indicates whether Intel(R) AMT is enabled or disabled on computers that have Intel(R) AMT installed. The application also displays an icon in the notification area of the Windows* taskbar indicating the Intel(R) AMT status. This application is available only in English. This application is executed and installed as part of the Intel(R) Active Management Technology Local Management Service setup.exe file.

NOTE: The  Intel(R) Active Management Technology System Status Service  is available to users with "administrator"privileges and "non-administrator" privileges.


**********************************************************************
*  2. System Requirements
**********************************************************************

The Intel(R) Active Management Technology System Status Service application is supported on the following 
operating systems:
	- Windows* XP SP1/2 (32 bit)
	- Windows* Vista (32 and 64 bit)



**********************************************************************
  3. Usage
**********************************************************************

The Intel(R) Active Management Technology System Status Service Status application is installed as part of the LMS-SOL when the Setup.exe is executed. After being installed, the application appears on the task bar and is operated every time Windows* boots.



********************************************************************************************************
  4. Customized configuration of Intel(R) Active Management Technology System Status Service application
********************************************************************************************************

a) To check Intel(R) Active Management Technology System Status Service:  Run atchk.exe.

   To set the computer to always display the status icon on the 
   Windows taskbar: 
   (i)  Run the enable.reg registry file (described below)
   (ii) Copy the atchk.exe to - C:\Program Files\Intel\AMT Status

b) Files included with the Intel(R) Active Management Technology System Status Service application:
   (i)  atchksrv.exe - This service will be automatically started 
		       when Windows* boots. This service takes care
		       of the administrator privileges needed by the 
		       "non-administrator" users to make use of the 
		       Intel(R) Active Management Technology System Status Service application. And hence, 
		       the Intel(R) AMT Status is displayed for 
		       "non-administrator" users also.

   (ii) enable.reg - Run this file once to start the application each 
		     time Windows boots. This file assumes that the
		     Intel(R) AMT status application is located at:
		     "C:\Program Files\Intel\AMT Status\atchk.exe".
		     If the application was installed in a different
		     path instead (i.e. under "D:" or under "Program
		     Files(x86)", then the enable.reg file should be
		     modified accordingly.


   (iii) disable.reg - Run this file once to stop the application from 
		      starting when Microsoft Windows boots.


    The following files enable computer manufacturers to customize the 
    application:

    (iv) oemlogo.sam - Modify this bitmap to display a custom graphic 
			in the message window. If this bitmap is 
			located in the same directory as atchk.exe, 
			the application displays this graphic in place 
			of the default Intel logo. The bitmap must 
			conform to the following specifications:
                 	- 64 by 42 pixels
			- Overall file size of less than 15k bytes
			- The file must be renamed to oemlogo.bmp 
			  and must be of bitmap format

    (v) oementry.reg - The registry keys in this file illustrate how 
			to modify the Windows registry to change the 
			default behavior of the application.

OemUrl: If this registry entry is found, the specified URL will be 
used for the “click here” URL instead of the default URL 
(http://www.intel.com/vpro).
The URL must not be longer than 260 characters.
Make sure that the URL begins with "http://", or, alternatively, that
it begins with "www.". Otherwise, the URL might not be seen as an HTTP
URL on some operating systems.

MinimizePrivacyIconAtStart: If this registry entry is found and is set 
to a value other than 0, the application will be minimized to the 
taskbar. Otherwise, the application displays the dialog when it 
starts.

TRACE: If this registry entry is found and it set to the value of 1, 
a log file is created.  The log file can be useful for validation and 
debugging. The log file is named: <Windows directory>\temp\atchk.log
