Set objNet = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
DesktopPath = WshShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop")

'map network drive
objNet.MapNetworkDrive "T:", "\\Bst-main\Student\_Reception\Yr R 2007 - 2008", "True"

'create a icon on the desktop
Set link = WshShell.CreateShortcut(DesktopPath & "\Yr R 2007 - 2008.lnk")
link.Description = "User Share Drive"
link.HotKey = "CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+T"
link.IconLocation = "explorer.exe,0"
link.TargetPath = "T:"
link.WindowStyle = 3

Simply because drive mappings are *user* specific, not machine specific.
You'll have to run this script indeed per user, not per machine.
