On XP this worked fine. The user clicks on frontEndShortCut.lnk and they get their own private copy of the front end.
On Windows 7 with user account control (uac) disabled, this also worked fine.
But, I decided to turn UAC on, and things have gotton messy.

So, I am thinking of simply changing my logon script so
it copies \\server\frontEnd.mdb to c:\myFrontEnds\*.*
Does anybody think this is a bad idea? For instance with UAC enabled, how can I make the login script cannot run an MD c:\myfrontends and then assign user full control.
This is getting to be more complicated than I want.
