We are web/Flash people but were asked if we can take on a project that I would describe as creating a shell environment for Windows (probably XP), to hide the normal Windows Interface.
The idea is for the company's employees to work in this environment and only have access to limited local apps. and never the Windows desktop or any other part of the OS. We would create a company branded graphic "overlay" with buttons to the apps (say MS Word or whatever) and the apps would open in a window (area) inside the overlay and function as normal.
We know how to make Flash full screen and pull data or video into it, but no idea on how to do this.
Is this even possible? Is it a C or VB or Adobe Air or what type of project? Has anyone done this before? Is this risky?
I appreciate your help guys.
