Admin user password prompt in logon script
Posted on 2004-10-07
Have a problem with GPO on computer startup.
First off, I have no computer startup scripts at all, only single logon scrip. The logon script is .vbs encrypted into a .vbe file that does nothing more than runs a .bat file or two but the .vbe script uses the runas command to execute the .bat files as an admin user. The problem is the script stops and requests the password to be entered instead of just going on like it should. This prompt for the password while the script executes only occurs after the computer has been rebooted. You enter the password at the point that it asks for it or just hit ctrl c to break out. If you then logoff and back in, the script runs with no problem. You can logoff and on with no problem and the script runs fine. It is only the first logon after the computer is booted up that the script prompts for the password of the “admin” user specified in the .vbe script.
Thanks in advance.
