I am wanting to create some scripts that will run the first time a new user logs into a domain computer but I am not having any luck doing so. Bascially what I am trying to do is configure a homepage for IE and set some Office 2010 settings by running some scripts when a new user logs in to their machine.
I have tried creating a new key "hkey_users\.DEFAULT\Softw
Once", adding a new string value called "First Run" and pointed it to the script which I stored for testing purposes in C:\test.
After creating the new key entry I log in as a new domain user and find that the script didn't run, or else it encountered an error. However, I am able to run the script with success if I double click it from within the new user account profile.
here is an example of the script called "set_homepage.vbs"
Set ChangeReg = CreateObject("WScript.Shel
nternet Explorer\Main\Start Page", "http://www.google.com/
Am I doing something wrong? Are there any other ways to create one time login scripts for the default profile without having to use Group Policy and or running scripts from the DC?
Thanks in advance
