Startup Script Running after login
I have a strange problem while running trying to run a computer startup script to install adobe CS3, the script runs fine, but doesn't run at startup, it runs once the user has logged in, which isnt what its ment to do, i have other scripts that run fine at computer startup, and have not set it up in any other way, but it just seems to only run when the user logs into a machine, not when the computer starts.

I have exactly the same problem. We have rewritten our current login script in VBS but just wont run on startup. Our original login script runs completely fine (dos batchfile).
Any ideas appreciated.

You might want to try enabling the GPO setting to wait for network at startup

I think there is a group policy that sets synchrones or asynchrones applying group policies. Thats about what order they are applied. I have tried looking this up for you but the lancs firewall is blocking so many sites now I cannot find it sorry.

possibly while error checking setting run startup scripts visible may help

Also, bear in mind that the security context that a Startup Script runs in means that it only has Anonymous access to network resources.
If the script is installing software from a server share that only has 'Authenticated Users: Read' for example, it will not work. If you allow 'Everyone: Read' (share and file level permissions), then this should do the trick. Even then, this will only work on servers in the same (or trusted) forest.
I came across this problem when trying to automate SIMS installations onto PCs in a 'Curriculum' domain that was in a different forest to the 'Admin' domain where the installation files were stored. Solution in the end was to replicate installation files to a server on the 'Curric' domain. Yuck.
