Windows 7 Start Menu Folder Redirection Failing
Posted on 2011-04-28
Windows Domain at 2003 Functional Level - HAVE 2003 and 2008 DCs...editing GP on 2008 server only -- trying to get local (C:\MENUS) start menu to work..and it's NOT. The menu comes up as EMPTY. Under XP, (and we still have XP workstations that need to still work) there are 3 subfolders they use depending if they are ADMIN/STAFF or STUDENTS. I cannot get the Windows7 GPO to work - it appears to fail with a 0x80070005 (access denied) error but ACCESS to WHAT?? Using a WMI filter to successfully detect that it's only applying to WIndows 7 boxes; but because of how users are in GPOs, the XP GPOS are also there..doesn't work when the user is OUTSIDE of the XP GPO's either...How can I get this to work like XP?? 500 points to the correct answer. I have tried putting the folder on the network with full rights; still doesn't work...tried ALOT of things; looking for the RIGHT answer!! HELP! Need more info; ask.
