Group Policy Startup Script Problem

3 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

I have been browsing these boards for a while and have searched before posting.

I have a problem with one of my scripts. I have slimmed it down to one line :mellow: for the purposes of debugging. It runs as a bootup script using Group Policy (so will run under the System account)

$Code = RunWait("\\server\Office2010\setup.exe /adminfile \\server\office2010\Updates\custom.msp")

Which should just basically install Office 2010, and it works perfectly on Windows XP, but on Windows 7 (32bit) it does install but gives no visual feedback that it is doing anything at all.

Even msgbox's do not display and simply pause the script, you also do not see the try icon.

I am assuming that this is because it runs under the system account and Windows 7 changes it so that users only see their own process's ? is there anyway around this ?

Thanks.

Sorry guys,

I figured out the problem was with Group Policy settings not AutoIT. All fixed.

Apologies.
