Exactly. He should see an event in the event log talking about script
policy processing timing out if that was the case.

Possibly but there's no one there to click OK!

Well it might send them to that desktop session you see prior to

point  :-)

        Glad you got it working but my guess would have been the Msgbox
calls. You can't run those in a startup script since there is no UI to
receive them. I suspect the script was just hanging on those.

        I got it working.  I had to remove the group membership portion
of the script.  
        
         If objFilesystem.FileExists("C:\windows

        \saplogon.ini") Then
                     objFilesystem.DeleteFile "C:\windows\saplogon.ini",
True
             End If
         
            objFilesystem.CopyFile "\\beaches\NETLOGON\saplogon.ini",
"C:\windows\", True

        
        This is the working script.
        
        Thanks for all your help.

problems or did you add those for troubleshooting after you implemented
it as a startup script?

        This is the script.
        
        If objFilesystem.FileExists("C:\windows\saplogon.ini") Then
        msgbox("1")
                 objFilesystem.DeleteFile "C:\windows\saplogon.ini",

        The message boxes tell me if it ran.

        At the workstation, you can run RSOP.MSC and drill into the
scripts section (it looks just like the GP Editor namespace). It will
tell you if the script was being processed and when it last ran.

         

        Or, if you're not at the workstation, using GPMC's GP Results
Wizard to connect remotely to the machine and find out which GPOs and
settings applied during the last processing cycle.

        On windows vista, it works perfectly, but on windows XP it is
not working at all.
        
        This is very weird.  I will try to put access on domain
computers and we will see what happens.

        If "Authenticated Users" has read access that should suffice.
However, I've seen weirdness before where access is denied until you
actually add "Domain Computers." Startup scripts run under the  NT
AUTHORITY\SYSTEM context which is the equivalent of the machine's
computer object.

         

        If it is a relatively small file, I would add it to the
scripts/startup folder of the GPO and copy it from there. Then you can
be sure the machine account is not being denied access. Also check RSoP
and make sure the script is actually being executed.

        The location it is coming from is the netlogon folder that
everyone has access to.  I do know that the script works because as a
Domain admin it copies the file over fine.  It's only the users.

        Are you sure that your script is actually copying the file

location you are trying to copy from?

        Any ideas?

        Yes, startup scripts won't run at background refresh, even if
you do a gpupdate /force command. The machine will process the script

        So you are saying for me to reboot the PC on top of replicating

If you've already deployed the Group Policy Preference extensions, you
can also use that to copy files.

        Hello,
        
        I have been trying to copy over a file to c:\windows before the
users log in.  All users have domain users rights.  (no access to
anything)  I need a file copied over to c:\windows.  I have added a
start up script to the computer configurations but when I do a gpresult
it does not apply.  I have force a replication but it still does not
seem to work.
