    Hi

    Have you not tried running delprof remotely.

    Put delprof on your machine and then create a del.bat and put the following in the bat file.

    delprof /q /i /c:\\machinename

    This would suggest to me that the command in not in the %path%.

    Glad to be able to help. I tend to script a lot of things using command shell, so that is something I'm used to seeing when I typo a command.

    so I am trying to learn how to script, particularly a delprof script that will run on multiple computers in a classroom at logoff however since I have heard that the profile is still locked during logoff, maybe at shutdown. I know nothing about the code to generate a script or write a batch file.

    Is it possible that someone might be able to teach me a little something that would help me to accomplish this task. I just got a new job and my boss wants just the script needed to run delprof on the student machines automatically.

    so far what I think I need is as follows:

    chdir "pathname"
    delprof /i /q /c:\\computer name
    delprof /i /q /c:\\computer name
    delprof /i /q /c:\\computer name
    delprof /i /q /c:\\computer name
    delprof /i /q /c:\\computer name ------>I am under the impression that I continue to add lines for each separate computer name

    I believe this is code for a batch file, but I don't even know where to create a batch file and if this is all the code that is required.

    Sorry that I am so uneducated about this. Thank you in advance for any help!
