Logon script running in minimized mode

By shanna ·
I'm in the process of upgrading all our user PCs to Windows XP Pro from Windows NT 4.0. The XP machines all connect to an NT domain, and all drives are mapped and the time synched through logon scripts.

With NT 4.0, the script windows would always run so that the user could see the drives being mapped, etc., but with XP the script runs minimized down on the taskbar. Is there any way to have the logon script run in a window like in NT?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Are you using WSH for your script language? If so I think I can help with this.

I'm afraid not. I've created the logon batch files from scratch just using notepad, and saved as a .BAT file in the NETLOGON directorys on our PDC & BDC. Nothing fancy, just mapping the network drives & synching to the server time.

I know how to do this in a win 2k/2k3 domain, going into group policy on the domain controller and setting
"Run logon scripts Visible"
This might work, however you have to run the logon script from group policy.

Might help for the future.
