company implemented years ago DFS spread on 5 srv always 2003 r2.
There is folder redirection and roamaing  profiles that are both working great with Windows xp sp3
Now, I have created a shortcut ( right click send to )   from  redirected folder  to my desktop windows 7 and every time I try to open/double click the shortcut I'm receiving a elevation prompt  requesting user and password.

Any idea  on why?
Thanks

This is probably because the local user on the XP machines is an admin or in the local admin group.
Check if the XP users are in the local admin group on the PCs and then if this is the case add the user on the Windows 7 machine to the local admin group on the windows 7 machine.

The prompt will appear if you lack the necessary privileges - in XP, the desktop and other folders were not protected that much. Besides making the user local admins, you can change privs on the target folder.

I would recommend giving the AD group the privelidges that it needs to access these folders, set the folder premissions to include this group and then when you add more windows 7 machines you will not have this problem over and over again.
