run .vbs script at startup

need to run a vbs script at startup. win2008 servers , win7 clients

can I simply put a path to 'name.vbs' directly in group policy or do I need to create a bat file
cscript 'path to name.vbs'
and then run that bat file in group policy?
thanks

you can directly use vbs and it will work for all clients higher than Windows 2000

great so a startup script path of:
\\server\folder\name.vbs

will be ok?

I usually put VBS in the GPO / user / script / login folder but, yes there is no reason it wouldnt work if user has access to this shared folder.

But if you're asking the question, I guess you have already tried and it didnt go really well, am I right ?
