Hi,

As per http://www.kixtart.org/manual/Notes/RUNNING.htm, kix32.exe will run kixtart.kix automatically if no other script arguments are presented (actually, it will try username.kix first, but then it's supposed to try kixtart.kix).

Since 4.60, and still present in 4.61, kix32.exe will ~not~ successfully execute kixtart.kix when run as a logon script. It seems to work okay when run directly from the command line, but not from inside the logon process.

Changing the "Logon script" attribute in AD from "kix32" to "kix32 kixtart.kix" works as expected.

I've seen a lot of people mention this problem but haven't been able to find any mention of active efforts to fix the bug or update the manual, and a bit of googling turns up many people who seem to fall into this trap with the later builds.

Version 4.53 works as expected (ie, with "kix32" in the attribute - no need for "kix32 kixtart.kix").

Hopefully this can be fixed in the next release.

Cheers,
Jon.

Yep, bug still exists in 4.62, just tested then.

Replacing "kix32" with "kix32 kixtart.kix" in the users logon script attribute works as expected.

I'm pretty sure this was tested recently and found to work properly with 4.66.
