Run Tasks from a Windows Remote agent in foreground

Is there a way to force a remote agent to run an application in the foreground on Windows?

When I execute tasks on an agent it loads in the background.

What do you mean by foreground? If your agent needs access to Windows GUI, does following the instructions from, section " If your builds are not headless (i.e. they show/manipulate windows, like Selenium does), click here for additional instructions" help?


I have the same question, and want to invoke a media player by bamboo. What do you mean by addressing that URL? Shall I configure an elastic image on Windows, or just uncheck the checkbox to turn automatically logon on? I tried with turning it on, but it does not work for my agent and player.
