Small Business Server 2003 logon script script error on Windows 7 client

When I attempted to connect a Windows 7 Pro system to an existing Small Business Server 2003 domain using the http://servername/connectcomputer internet explorer address I received an error message saying that the netlogon script  has know problems with Windows 7 clients (i.e. a 'clients\setup\setup.exe /s' error).  

I therefore successfully connected the computer to the domain manually via the control panel. However, every time the client now logs on to the domain the netlogon setup.exe still attempts to run which generates an error warning which needs to be cancelled.

How do I prevent this file attempting to run at client logon.  Many thanks in advance for help.

Stop using the default login script for the user you are loggin in as and the problem will go away.

Or, create a new login script that doesn't use the clients\setup.exe in the script.

Thanks, I don't want to change the existing logon script for future domain members so how do I configure this client to by pass the default login script in future . Thanks.

Each user in Active Directory Users and Computers will have the login script specified in their account settings.

Just remove the login.bat from their user account and that will resolve the issue (from the profile tab).

Are you using a Fax on the SBS server to send faxes out via the server as this is the most likely cause of the problem and Windows 7 won't like the fax drivers?

We don't use this service but it could be installed by default ?  Is there a simple way to avoid installing this service for Windows 7 clients (and thereby allow the standard login configuration script to run as normal) ?

What else is in your default login script?  It might not be doing anything anyway and thus removing it could be the best solution.
