We recently went through a Windows 10 upgrade from build 1607 to 1803. Our Logon Script utilizes the @logonmode macro to trigger (or not trigger) certain events. It appears build 1803 always returns a 1. Bug?

Kix versions 4.66 and 4.67 tested.

Hello JNK

Not sure. I don't have a machine with that build to test. But it would not surprise me, as Microsoft keeps locking down Windows 10 tighter with each build. Might need to do registry read to check for now until this can be confirmed and possibly fixed.

The @LOGONMODE macro has been intermittently unreliable over the years. This has ALWAYS worked for me:
 Code:
If @LOGONMODE Or InStr('%PATH%', 'NetLogon')
  $LOGONMODE = 1
This assumes you don't do anything weird like putting NetLogon in the system PATH variable.. \:\)

During login, Windows automatically adds the NetLogon folder to the system path. Once the login process completes, it's gone.

If it's always returning true, just use the PATH method.

Afaik the netlogon folder gets mapped to Z: during login.

That stems from back in the day when we were told to never map the Z: drive (for that reason). I don't think that's been valid for a while now. \:\)

Think I recall that mapping netlogon to Z: a "wintendos" thing.

yeah, it was mandatory with those things to use it, but it was/is accessible under the NT side too.
