customizing pinned programms list via Group Policy (or other)
Posted on 2009-04-27
I'm stuck and I hope someone can help.
I need to customize the pinned programs list on the start menu on XP pro machines for my users. This needs to be done automatically when they login and I have about 5 different user groups all requiring different shortcuts.
What I have done so far is to copy shortcuts to the pinned programs list manualle, then exported the appropriate registry keys and then import them using a logon script. This works, except for one major flaw, the new configuration doesn't show up until the user logs in the second time. How can I have these changes take effect immediately?
One more little thing, I'm not familiar with writing scripts and I need to get this going for now and will worry about scripting once evryone else is being productive :) I can deal wtih a batch file or two though.
