    Ahh yes!

    Change permissions on the share was the fix. Once this was added the fault vanished.

    @GrahamCT

    I have since fixed this problem. I was storing the start menu folders in netlogon so I tried creating a new dedicated share on another server called redirection. I used the domain users security group for share and security permissions and then created various subfolders in the directory for different users start menu and desktops. One thing I did notice was regarding the share permissions. I initially gave domain users 'read' but the original problem on second login then occurred so I had to grant domain users 'change'. On security permissions I gave domain users 'read'. E.g.

    server\redirection$\staff\start menu
    \desktop
    server\redirection$\students\start menu
    \desktop

    Hope this helps.

    I'm getting this exact fault too at one of our sites. We've got redirected start menus/desktops with Win7 at numerous sites but this one seems to be the only one with this problem so think it's more of a peculiar quirk rather than a Win7/redirected start menus fault.

    On first login all shortcuts are fine from the redirected start menu but on second login those in the root (\\servername\share$\startmenu\programs\) are inactive as you say. Not able to launch or even right click. We've also found programs within folders (for example \\servername\share$\startmenu\programs\MS Office) are fine.

    If we delete the locally cached profile then the start menu will be fine on the next login but on subsequent logins the fault returns. Also found that on second logins (and beyond) the search programs bar from the start menu doesn't find any programs whist it does on first login.

    I don't think this is a security fault because if I create a shortcut on the users desktop to the redirected start menu they are able to launch all shortcuts perfectly.

    Something must be changing in the local profile from 1st to 2nd login which breaks this part of the start menu. :-/

    Hi - sorry didn't see this, Im not getting the alert emails from blog comments. No, SCCM/WDS will only boot PXE if its own provider is set up. So - just installing the role isn't enough to take over the other software. Im guessing FOG? This is what I did - just disabled the PXE service when I wanted to carry on using FOG.

    Hi,

    I have just been skimming over your posts. At the moment we use another bit of software that uses PXE to image computers. If i install WDS on a server but do not configure when a client PXE boots will it boot into WDS?

    Thanks

    @FN-GM images should be sorted now. Looks like ZH has put a new uploader in since which has dealt with it

    I'd like to hear how you handle this kind of setup for mobile workstations. Teachers and students that would take a laptop home.
    Also, what if they don't have an internet connection at home. How would they still be able to work at home with Word, Excel, etc.

    You probably can. I dont see any reason why not. It would just be a read in the variable, and do a compare against another variable taking the date to disable.

    CS 4 and CS 5 both run fine. The only thing is make sure you sequence for the appropriate platform - ie. the 64 bit Adobe bits on Server (we use RDS a lot for Thin Client); and 32 bit Adobe bits else where.
