    CC3 Start Menu and Vanilla machines

    We are currently on RM CC3 network and have some laptops on Vanilla XP.

    Problem I have at the moment is that when a students logs into the Vanilla machine they are getting a start menu that was populated by the RM system. So therefore there are shortcuts on there that are not actually on the machine. There are no shortcuts from All Users on the local machine shown. We have been ok so far because programs like MS Office have been installed in the same location in Program Files as what they are on a CC3 workstation so the links have worked.
    What I now have is a package that I want on the laptops but is not installed on the RM CC3 system. So the shortcut has not been added to the students profile start menu.
    I have tried Redirecting the students start menu to a folder on the network but that really screwed up the RM CC3 start menu.

    What I'm after is a way for students to login and see a start menu that is local to that Vanilla workstation. I've had a look round Group Policies but can't see a way of doing this.

    Hope that someone else has had this kind of problem and found a solution.

    Its ok. I found the solution.
    I found what I needed in User Types under Configuration Settings in RM Management Console.
