Kixtart dialog box doesn't display but script runs in background.

Windows 2003 domain (lastest 2003 updates)
Running a basic Kix script via Group Policy User Logon that applies mapped drives and network printers to  the correct security groups.  The location of the script is running via a network share \\servername\kix\kix32.exe with the parameter being the file "basic.kix". The script seems to be working cause it applies all of it's mappings to the correct groups, but the pretty little logon display itself isn't popping up. Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe this has something to do with a Group Policy setting as it has worked for me in the past before (different network). Here is my basic kix script without the additional mappings that work.

Color g+/n
BOX (1,1,16,49,FULL)
Color w+/n
at ( 3,5) "Welcome to BLAH."
at ( 4,5) "Userid : " ; display some text strings
at (5,5) "Full name : "

at (10,5) "Personal Folder: "
at (11,5) "Primary Group:"

Color y+/n

If InGroup("domain\group")
If InGroup("domain\group")
      Use M: /delete
      Use "M:" "\\servername\share"

i have not knowledge about kixtart, but the option in GP could possibly affect its window poping up would be:

user configuration\admin templates\system\scripts\run logon scripts visible
at start of script.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction iamgibbon.
    I did have to apply that command along with:
      SetConsole ("SHOW")
      SetConsole ("MAXIMIZE")
      SetConsole ("FOREGROUND")
      SetConsole ("ALWAYSONTOP")
