    c) All students are also in an area called USERS on Active Directory

    What I still do not have though are the folders in the D Drive for each studets to save their work - how do I add a My Documents, My Pictures, My Music, etc?
    The folders that have been created on your server D drive will in act be the users MY DOCUMENTS folders.

    When a user logs on they should receive a mapped H: drive (which should be mapped to this folder on your server), you should find this by going to My Computer when logged on as a user.

    Winsuite will also redirect the MY DOCUMENTS folder to this H: Drive.

    Depending on how your system is set up The My Pictures, My Music etc folders will be created the first time a user logs on.

    This is done via "Winsuite Administrator"

    How do you create shortcuts for different year groups?

    Do i log on as a teacher or administrator at a station?

    You need to be logged on as an administrator.

    You then nedd to use the "Winsuite Administrator" to set up your users desktops, shortcuts Etc.

    Hi

    Have worked the desktop stuff out now, was quite simple so thanks for your help!

    Now i have one computer that is causing a problem! The winsuite logon screen comes up and i logged on as administrator but can't find the winsuite administrator program!!!

    It's also not mapping some shortcuts correctly etc....

    My idea was top somehow remove winsuite then rejoin the pc to winsuite!! Is that something that you can do? How do you also clear profiles on the station as this might also be a problem?

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    when winsuite is first installed on the server there are 4 shares that get created.

    From a client you need to access the "rollnt$" share. from there you can run "setup" which if winsuite is installed will give you options to uninstall, or, if not already installed, will give an install option.

    I presume i don't need to rejoin the machine to the domain again as it is already?

    So if i was to join an admin machine to the domain without installing winsuite i would just join it as usual?

    And if it is a curriculum machine with winsuite to be installed, you join it to the domain first then install winsuite?

    Am i right in thinking that?


    Thanks

    Where would the rollnt$ share folder be stored on the server?

    If winsuite has been installed with all the default settings it would be here.

    c:\program files\winsuite\rollnt

    Cool, thats now sorted so thanks again.

    What about printers? I don't seem to find how printers have been attached to computers?

    I need to change some computers so that they can print to a differen one?

    Is this done via winsuite administrator? can i do it from the server to a group of computers?

    Thanks so much fot your help

    *mini necro*

    I'm due to start working at a primary school from next week that uses Winsuite. In an effort to get up to speed as quickly as possible I'm trying to find out some of the basics of how to use the various bits of software they've got, and winsuite I can find forum links (like this one) for working with/removing it, but NOTHING about what it is, where it comes from, or where to get support for the damned thing, if there is any. I saw it's made by NDI tech, who according to the UK site, appear to be pretending the software never existed.

    If anyone has links towards a manual, a support page, or a place with working guides etc, it would be appreciated.
