Installing BGInfo.exe onto Windows XP problem
Posted on 2008-06-19
The following KIXTART script works on the majority of our Windows 2000/XP PCs but occasionally fails.
Some XP installations create the folder but don't copy the files. Other XP installs don't even create the folder. I have stepped through this using the /d switch but get no errors. It acts like a permission problem but then it should never work if that is the case.
Domain users do not have local administrator (or power user) credentials here.
Also, on the XP installs that don't even create the folder, it doesn't work for me when logged in as an Enterprise Administrator in a Windows 2000 AD. We have installed XP sp3 but most of the PCs with the problem are at sp2:
MD "c:\program files\bginfo"
;IF EXIST("c:\program files\bginfo\shh.bgi")
copy "\\oak\installs\applications\bginfo\*.*" "c:\program files\bginfo"
cd "c:\program files\bginfo"
SHELL '%COMSPEC% /C "bginfo.exe shh.bgi /TIMER:0 /NOLICPROMPT"'
Anyone see this problem before or have any thoughts?
