System Startup Checks

The ADAM Lockdown Browser automatically verifies that the device meets minimum system requirements. If a device fails one of these checks, a summary of the issue appears. When possible, the user can resolve the issue.

For example, if the Lockdown Browser detects that a device has two monitors, an alert appears providing the user the option to unplug one monitor and then select Retry to rerun the checks. Similar notifications appear if the device has a low battery level or is not plugged into a power outlet.

Warning messages do not prevent the application from starting.
