Follow up to Vista logon script issues
After bringing up the logon script issues on Vista that I previously blogged on with the Microsoft Group Policy Folks, they pointed me to the following document:
This document talks about using some of the GP features in Vista and there is a section in there entitled, "Group Policy Scripts can fail due to User Account Control" which describes the workaround to this problem. It appears to be a timing issue with respect to when the script runs compared to when the desktop is available. It is related to UAC as well. In that document, in Appendix A, there is a WSH script that you can run, that calls your logon script using a Scheduled Task, which helps delay when your logon script runs until the desktop is fully available (at least that's my assumption). So, if you having problems with logon scripts in Vista, this is the solution!
