Missing Icons During GPO Software Deployment to Some Users
Posted on 2013-01-24
I am using GPO Software Deployment to install certain applications for both specific users and specific machines.
The ones causing problems are linked via an OU containing user objects via User Configuration. Users that are not administrators (locally or on the domain) can access the program, however the icon is not installing properly on the desktop. If I check the properties of the desktop shortcut, and click Change-Icon, it tells me a specific local %appdata% path doesn't exist. How do I get around this? I am guessing it is a local permissions problem, but I don't want to use GPO to make these users local administrators, and I don't want to change the application so it installs pre-login via Computer Configuration.
