I have previously used Windows Server 2003 to setup folder redirection of the Start Menu in a Group Policy (User configuration, Folder redirection, Start Menu - C:START Menu). I then copied all of the links to the programs that I wanted the user to see to the customized Start Menu for when they logged on and this worked great (all shortcuts to run programs were copied to C:start menu directory on the local machine running XP Professional). I am trying to do the same thing using Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 Professional. The Start Menu gets redirected and the customized menu is copied, however when I click the START button and choose all programs, no programs appear in the list. However, when I click the START button and right click ALL PROGRAMS and choose OPEN, it shows C:start menu (which is my redirected START MENU) and all the programs that I customized appear in the list. Any thoughts on why the programs do not appear in Windows 7 when you click START and ALL PROGRAMS? Thanks for your help.
