Printer logon script not running on Windows 7 Pro machines?

By GLeung ·
Hi, I created 2 GPO's (both logon scripts: 1 for mapping network drives, the other for installing our network printers). When I log into Windows XP Pro machines, both scripts run fine. However, when I log into a Win 7 Pro machine, only the mapping drive script runs, the printer script does not. I turned off UAC and gave local admin rights but the script still doesn't run. Running the printer script manually does install the printers on the Win 7 machines but obviously I want to avoid doing this.

Can anyone offer any insight?

Deploy using a policy

I don't know if this will help but you can deploy printers & network drives in your group policy,(Check on server 2008 R2) In the group policy Management editor network Drives is under:
User Configuration > Preferences > Windows Settings > Drive maps
& printers should be under:
User Configuration > Preferences > Windows Settings > Control Panel Settings > Printers
Just right click and click new, This is the way I've used to deploy printers.
