Hello all and thanks in advance for your time and expertise.
For whatever reason, my printer scripts are not installing on my clients.  Please bear in mind that these scripts have worked fine for some time now.  I was setting up a new pc, joined the staged acct in the domain, and logged in and no printer.  And the weird part is this is only happening in one of my bldgs.  
The only error I get is on the client side with the source userinit event id 1000 - could not execute the following script - cannot find the file specified.
The group policy show as applied when you run gpresult on the client but no printer is installed.
However, printers deployed with preferences do install successfully.
Any recommendations or advice are greatly appreciated.  I've followed most leads except for sharing violations but I've never troubleshooted that before.  Please help.
enviornment is a mix of server 2003 and server 2008.  clients are winxp.  Logon scripts are applied to computers.

i also have event id 20 on clients and no group policy printers get installed.  This error tells me printer drivers were installed but none of my group policy printers are installed.

If you run the script manually from the client that's having problems does it work?
Are you using pushprinterconnection.exe? Does the client have access to this exe file?
