    How to get start menu redirection working in a mixed XP / W7 environment

    Hi there

    I'm having a problem with redirecting my start menu on the windows 7 PC's.

    XP computers work perfectly

    I have a share with a folder called programs and within there are the shortcuts.

    But when I log into a windows 7 PC I get all the shortcuts plus another folder called Programs?!

    If i click any of the shortcuts as a limited user the shortcuts do nothing. But if I then browse into the programs folder I can then see all the shortcuts again but this time they work.

    It's really annoying and I'm sure I have figured this out in the past but I cannot seem to understand whats going on this time.

    Normally you would have a folder called Programs within the folder where the Start Menu is redirected which contains your shortcuts.

    Yes thats what I have at the moment.
    It's probably something to do with the users roaming profiles.

    Ok well I figured it out. Just removed the users local profile and re-created their roaming one also.
    Works after that. I knew I was doing it correctly....what a strange problem that is.. hmm
