Run a Dos application from server to client machine.

by srgmnab In reply to Can the user

when a 2003 server user log in a client machine, the dos application TC must run automatically. and also it must store the executed files in the user home directory located in the 2003 server.
Now you can understand, what is my proposition is?

Logon script is the go

As Seanferd says, just make sure that you configure your 'TC' application to save any files in the home drive (which you setup in active directory ie: j:\, etc.).

hai thanx for the idea. i need some more information regarding how to write log on script and how can i assign the script to the Organizational Unit(contains 30-40 users).
i have installed the TC application in every client. But still when i assign the path of home directory ex : z:\, it says can't create output file.

DOS application?

by seanferd In reply to how to run dos applicatio ...

If TC is what I think it is, you've got the entirely wrong OS. But i think I see: Even some Unix users think that "DOS" means "command line interface". It doesn't. Windows users seem to be stuck in the same rut. (There is no DOS in an NT kernel.)

My guess? The user may need some elevated rights to use such an application, or permission to access the file.

And what do you mean, "from home folder location"? Should be in /usr/bin. Type TC in terminal, or create an application shortcut in your desktop environment.
