Hello Kathy I just got my INGROUP problem working and maybe my fix will work for you. I have multiple OS's as well. I have a LOGIN.BAT file executing my KIX script, as follows;

LOGIN.BAT
@echo off
Rem Branched startup script for Kixtart.
Rem Windows XP drops all parameters after EXE if %0 is used.
Rem %0\..\ is only required for Windows 95, 98, and Me.
Rem Detect OS (NT or other)
if (%OS%) == (Windows_NT) goto NT_XP

:9x
%0\..\wKix32.exe testsmh.kix
goto end

:NT_XP
wkix32.exe test.kix
:end

End LOGIN.BAT

Begin TEST.KIX

SELECTCASE InGroup("Group") $Drive="drive letter" $SHARE="\\servername\share" ? "Mapping drive $Drive to $Share" Use "$Drive:" /Delete Use "$Drive:" $ShareIf @error = 0 ? " Map Successful" eLSE ? " Error mapping drive $Drive to $Share" EndIF $Drive="drive letter" $Share="\\servername\share" ? "Mapping drive $Drive to $Share" Use "$Drive:" /Delete Use "$Drive:" $ShareIf @error = 0 ? " Map Successful" eLSE ? " Error mapping drive $Drive to $Share" EndIFENDSELECT

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FYI for other novices; Each "GROUP" must have only a single CASE statement following the SELECT statemet with all the subsequent drive mappings underneath. Only use the "ENDSELECT" statement at the very end of your script.

Try this logic and apply it to your situation, I hope this helps.

Sorry about the KIX dump, trying again:
code:
SELECT
CASE InGroup("GROUP")
$Drive="DRIVE LETTER"
$SHARE="\\SERVERNAME\SHARE"
? "Mapping drive $Drive to $Share"
Use "$Drive:" /Delete
Use "$Drive:" $Share
If @error = 0
? " Map Successful"
eLSE
? " Error mapping drive $Drive to $Share"
EndIF

$Drive="DRIVE LETTER"
$Share="\\SERVERNAME\SHARE"
? "Mapping drive $Drive to $Share"
Use "$Drive:" /Delete
Use "$Drive:" $Share
If @error = 0
? " Map Successful"
eLSE
? " Error mapping drive $Drive to $Share"
EndIF

ENDSELECT

End KIX script

CASE: per group
SELECT:Beginning of Group delineation
ENDSELECT: End of script file.

Once again, hope this helps

Thanks everyone for your help. There is a KIXTART.LOG that I found that helped a lot. With the information in it and your help I have INGROUP running.

What was the ultimate fix? Was it the Local Groups under 9x?

It maybe helpful for future troubleshooting sessions.

Thanks!

Kathy,
Please post the error and the solution so others that come across this thread later may learn from it.

Thanks

1. Be Sure the user's PC is connecting to the correct domain. The one I was testing was set up long ago when there was a workgroup domain and it was attaching to that domain when it should have been attaching to the xx domain.

2. Be sure the Kix32.exe pgm resides on local hard drive and the dlls are in the c:\windows\system folder...see the instructions for installing on win9X pc.

3. Be sure the KXRPC service is running on all DCs.

4. REALLY HELPFULL was the kixtart.log that is found on the local HD. It pointed me the right direction.

Kathy,

What was in the KIXTART.LOG that was insightful?

Just curious.

Thanks!

kathy, what I read from this...

the actual solution was found with help of kixtart.log which showed the domain mismatch.

the others seemed to be irrelevant in this issue...
am I right?

That is true. But if you are a novice like I am, I like to know all that I need to do and or check to be sure I have everything in order to make kixtart work. I thought others might like to know.

Messages about what was going on while kixtart was trying to run. "Cannot retrieve user's domain info", etc.

Just FYI- To save time and effort on copying the KIXTART files on each 9x system. You can call the KIXTART executable from a batchfile as long as yo u have all the appropriate files in the NETLOGON share on the Domain Controllers you're logging into.

Code:
%0\..\wKix32.exe kix.script

For multiple OS's executing KIXTART.

Rem Detect OS (NT or other)
if (%OS%) == (Windows_NT) goto NT_XP

:9x
%0\..\wKix32.exe kix.script
goto end

:NT_XP
wkix32.exe kix.script
:end

A word of caution on Wintendos...
When using WKIX32, always call it with a Start /W

Topic: Kix32 crashing periodically on Win98

Yes Please post your solution. We are having the same problems. And I am thinking of rewriting our login scripts in vbs if I can't get this one figured out. Thank everyone.

jbastete, I understood I already replied into your previous post.
and, here the solution is before your eyes and still you keep on posting and digging up old topics.

if you feel that you can do better with vbs, do, but as far as I know your problem has nothing to do with the language.
even though you write it as exe it should fail if you don't do as recommended.

so, could you just read the posts and FAQ on the problem.
maybe even take couple of deep breaths.
