We are using the latest version of Pulse Desktop Client 9.1 and it is having the same issue. every time, we are asking end-user to go to Task Manager and maximize the authentication window to provide input.
@yesuveeranki Can you please involve Microsoft to look into this issue and see if they have any RCA/fix for this issue? Taking a procmon log should capture some info about the way how the application starts and how it behaves.
Better solution is to fix registry keys for window position. To do this please:
Wow, thanks for this solution. I had this issue because I generally use my laptop with the dock and a multimonitor setup. When trying to log into Pulse using just the laptop without extended display, the window pops up off the screen. Since it's not a "normal" window, I cannot use the Win+Arrow command to move it back onto my screen.
Your suggestion allowed me to maximize it on my single screen and log in. For the Pulse team, please make the login pop-up a "normal" window, or please have the pop-up show up on the screen if there is only one screen available.
I'm having this issue as well with a colleague on 902 - The connect (via Okta) window pops up into the Application Switcher, but when you click it, nothing happens. Going into Task Manager and choosing Switch To or Bring to Front does nothing. Yet, the auth window still exists in the application switcher, on the icon for Pulse Secure, and in the desktop spaces icon next to Cortana search. It just never shows when clicked.
They noted that they usually have a second monitor plugged in, so I'm assuming that, even though Windows doesn't detect a second display, it's 'displaying' it on the second monitor.
Reformatting is not an option at this time. Any suggestions? Thanks!
@SingleLukeReflex Registry setting change that was posted above should resolve this issue that you're describing. Did you try that?
