  • Hi,

    To better understand your problem, you need more information for troubleshooting.

    1. If the script works in lab, it indicates the problem may be caused by settings or software on your production Windows 7 system. Please try to compare the difference and let us know.
    2. What did the script do? I suggest create a simple script to test on production Windows 7 system, such as a BAT script which only open Notepad. Could it work?
    3. What do you mean by "policy extension"?

    4. GPMC report:
    On DC, open GPMC, right-click Group Policy Result, choose Group Policy Result Wizard, follow the wizard to collect a report of the Windows 7 system. When it finish, right-click in the right-panel, choose Save Report. If you would like other community member to analyze the report, upload the file to Windows Live SkyDrive (http://www.skydrive.live.com/), and paste the link here, if not, you can send the file to tfwst@microsoft.com (with this thread title or link in the email).

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    I talked to the product support for the application, and we did test if the application did run with the UAC on and yes it did. So thay mean that it is a GPO Script Logon problem and many seems to have problem with gpo logon script and UAC.

    Any comment?

  • Hi,

    As I asked above, if the script works in lab, it indicates the problem may be caused by settings or software on your production Windows 7 system. Please try to compare the difference and let us know.

    Also, could you create a simple script to run only NotePad to test logon script function? And create other script if NotePad script works.

    To narrow down the cause, it’s also suggested to disable all third party software and test in Clean Boot. Is there any progress?

    Thanks.
