    copying a file at logon

    am trying to copy the login script on to the desktop of some laptops at login (dont ask)

    using the command

    if %computername:~0,3% == LAP xcopy /Y /D \\lsahtc_win2k1\netlogon\ntstaff.bat "c:\documents and settings\%username%\desktop"

    if i run the login script in a cmd window after login has occurred it works fine. it doesnt work when the login script runs normally. is this something to do with profiles not being initialised or something? any thoughts on what to do to get it to work

    Re: copying a file at logon

    Try putting something like:

    echo computer name begins with
    echo %computername:~0,3%
    echo check for batch file
    if exist \\lsahtc_win2k1\netlogon\ntstaff.bat echo batch file exists
    echo path to desktop is
    echo "c:\documents and settings\%username%\desktop"
    at the top of your script while you're testing and see if you get the output you'd expect. It won't fix it, but it's where I'd start.
