    Start menu redirection short cuts inactive

    Hello,

    I am trying to configure start menu redirection for a mixed XP/7/2008 environment. I have setup a folder structure in netlogon for testing - Redirection > Students > Start Menu > Programs. I have pointed to this location in group policy using Basic (Redirect everyone's folder to the same location) and the following options:

    Grant user exclusive rights to Start Menu - Disabled
    Move the contents of Start Menu to the new location - Disabled
    Also apply redirection policy to Windows 2000, Windows 2000 server, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 operating systems - Enabled
    Policy Removal Behavior - Restore contents

    When logging in folder redirection applies okay for each OS and the event logs say folder redirection applied successfully every time. However, the second time I log in with the same user account (but only with 7 and 2008) the redirected start menu shortcuts are present but when you click them they close the start menu as if they are inactive. XP is absolutely fine :S

    Has anybody come across this?

    Thanks

    Not exactly what your after but we set it so dead links are not shown in the redirected start menu. Becuase of this we dont have this issue.
