Hello all,

Hopefully this will be easy.. When adding a icon to all my users desktops, using group policies, the icon does get added and works, but the ICON IMAGE that was select in Group Ploicy editor on the server does not get used.

So, instead of this:   icon 1


I get this:   icon 2
Here is the group policy screen that sets up the icon:

 config screen
Hope someone can help..  Just a fyi..  I need this icon on every users desktop, so am using the Default Domain Policy..  Thanks all - Wayne

Try putting the Icon on your Netlogon share and point the icon file path to that.

I solved the problem by changeing the %systemroot% to c:\windows\, in the icon file path..

Thanks
