batch to copy to all desktops in windows vista and 7

I need the windows vista/& version of the command line below...
COPY /y \\server\deploy\*.* "C:\DOCUME~1\All Users\DESKTOP\"    <<---this is the WINXP line

This should be a script that runs on the local computer but copies files to ALL account desktops not just the one that the scripted is being executed from.  I tried using %userprofile% but again that only copies to the account being executed from.  

It must be a simple batch command that runs from the local desktop as I am using psexec.  

Thank you.
