I'm having the worst time trying to execute my login script via a Group Policy. They syntax I'm using is KIXTART.EXE login.kix. The error I'm getting is "Could not execute the following script KIX32.EXE MXlogon.kix. The system cannot find the file specified".

Anybody steer me in the right direction? I don't really want to put the KIXTART executable on every PC if I can help it.

Thanks

Maybe point to the exact path for kix32.exe and MXLogon.kix.

Create a BATch file that in turn launches KiX32 or WKix32.

But the batch file still needs to reference KIXTART and logon.kix. What folder should I specify for them? Is anybody out there doing this?

I do this by specifying the name of a batch file for the login script and in the batch file I simply have this:
kix32.exe login.kix
All the files are then saved to the Sysvol directory of the domain controller. Works like a charm.

The batch file is only necessary when supporting Windows 9x. Otherwise, a direct call to Kixtart should be used instead.

Reality check... GPOs and Wintendos... never the twain shall meet.

One would surely hope so.
