    Batch File Security Warning on Logon - How do I disable it?

    Morning all

    Ok, I'm sure I used to know how to get this to work, but here goes..

    I've just upgraded our PaperCut MF System (I'd been putting if off, but when it broke the other day I took the chance to go from v13 to v14 with the thought "it can't get any worse"). Anyway. I've moved back from running the EXE File from the server as as soon as there was a hiccup, the file would crash out, and I've moved back to installing it locally.

    For belt and braces approach though, I've written a small batch file, that works great, and I've saved into \\domain\NETLOGON\Scripts\Printer\PaperCut-Check.bat and I've then added (via GPO) to the "Run these at Logon" that Batch file, but I get the old security warning when a user logs on. Essentially the batch file goes "has the client installed locally, if yes run it, if no, run it from the server this time" which is why I need to make use of it, but I just need to stop the lovely security warning that pops up really.

    So, lovely EduGeekers .. HEEELPPP ..

    Ok, I've managed to work around this by running the client silently and suppressing any errors (such as "this program is already running") from within the PaperCut config file. I've then added the 2 versions into the "Run at Logon" so it will run the local (if it exists) and if not it'll run the networked version.

    I'd rather use the script as it's a bit more graceful than relying on windows doing something itself, so if someone could point me in the right direction to make my original method work that would be helpful, but it's working for now.

    Thanks
    Andy

    I think you can also add it to the intranet zone in IE to stop the message.
