Have you logged on as a pupil with the ntuser file named as .dat. Then logged off. Then renamed the file ntuser.man?

Yep. I think this was one of the final things i done before i realised that it was fine with an open profile.
However, if the GPO mentioned above does the trick, i'm happy with it being open and the gpo not saving any changes.
Can't believe i've miss the option 'don't save settings'
I still haven't had a chance to check just yet.

'Do not save settings at exit' is only for desktop features, so i doubt that will work as it still saves new shortcuts if they're created and i guess it will probably save application data etc too.
I think i'll look into "Prevent roaming profile changes..." as mentioned, as i looks like it might do a job.

I've lost my way with this thread.
have you discounted using a single madatory profile? If so, why?

That makes no sense. A mandatory profile is no different to a roaming profile when on the client - ie if you created a roaming profile with a .dat file, logged in, then created one with a .man file the 2 would be identical. It only has a difference when saving back to the server.

I have no idea. We use mandatory profiles and i made them by leaving them as .dat, doing what i had to do, including getting this licence working, then made it mandatory. Then every user that uses it should get all the settings including this licence, but they don't.
It may even be a local setting. When i was doing a load of testing, the first mandatory user (eg. user.001) to log on to the pc got the licence, then if user.002 logged on with the same mandatory profile, they didn't, user.003 and so on also didn't, but i think user.001 did again.
The only way around this has been user.001 .002 etc with a non-mandatory profile. But unfortunately this means recent programs are the same etc and kids may mess about with program settings. We haven't let this loose on the kids yet though

What software is it? It seems like their should be a way around the whole licensing problem instead of re-inventing mandatory profiles.

It's Xstandard, which is a development tool apparantly.
I emailed them and they fobbed me off to the developer who also can't help me .
This was Xstandards reply
What it does is gives a you an extra tool bar in a text window on a website, just like the one we're typing in here. If it can't get the licence it shows the 'lite' version which doesn't have this extra toolbar.
A software developer needs to setup up the license file and configure Pro features because this needs to be done in code.
Apparently this is a big thing for my boss.
