I have a number of systems on our network that I want to use a .bat file in the all users startup to copy files with. So when a user logs in I want the bat file to run, copy the files from a share, to the users desktop. The problem is, that a number of these machines were stand alone systems then were added to a domain. This creates a problem where there are 2 profiles for each user, and the non-domain profile seems to be the default one. So even if you blow away the non domain profile....the %username% varialble still tries to look for the non domain profile.
So I thought I would use the %profilename% instead, but I get a syntax error. I also tried setting Username and Userprofile in the XP environment variables, but that didn't work either. This should not be a difficult thing to do, but I'm at a loss.
copy P:\Filepath\Update~1\*.mde %userprofile%\Desktop\
