Automatically run .bat file in Windows 7

By jasonemmg ·
We have a vbs script which automatically maps all networked drives on our XP computers.

I installed a Windows 7 PC yesterday and saw that it will not run the vbs script. How do I fix this problem? Can I use my old .bat file which does the same? which folder do I place it in on my WIN7 computer?

Thanks in advance!

You could rewrite it as a .bat, and then put it in \\domaincontroller\netlogon\file.bat. On the 'Profile' tab of the employees' AD accounts, enter file.bat as the login script.

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:;content

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.
