Hello, I’m hoping someone out here can assist me. Currently the users in my domain have a link in their IE favorites that is populated using Group Policy. Senior management would like this particular link to be placed on all users desktops as a shortcut along with a specific icon.
I’ve copied the shortcut in favorites, and placed it in the netlogon share of my domain. I’ve created a simple batch file: If Not Exist "C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersDesktopQuantros.url" copy \Mydomainnetlogonquantros.url "c:Documents and settingsAll usersDesktop" I’ve added this batch file to an existing GPO under the computer configurationwindows settingsscriptsstartup.
The startup script works, it places the shortcut on the desktops and when the users click on it, it takes them to the correct URL. However, the icon that needs to be associated with the link only shows up if the user account that is logged on has administrative privileges to the workstation, so I know it’s some kind of permissions issue, but I can’t figure it out.
I’ve checked the permissions of the shortcut in the netlogon share, I’ve checked the permissions on the all users profile and I’ve checked the permissions of the shortcut itself. All users have read and execute permissions. Does anyone have any other ideas as to why this icon will not show up unless a user has admin rights? Thanks
