Workshare script

How do I create a login script which will run ONLY once for users on Citrix which will run "Workshare.Professional.UserInit.exe"?

You bet..

Here's a sample vbscript (partly made generic):
(this is actually a production script that I have used in the past)

Option Explicit

'============================== Objects ===========================================================
Dim fso
Set fso							= CreateObject ("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Dim wshShell
Set wshShell					= CreateObject ("WScript.Shell")

'============================== Script variables ==================================================
Dim sBaseKey					'The base key for the script
sBaseKey						= "HKCU\Software\MyCompany\Scripts\MyScriptName"
Dim bHasBeenRUn
bHasBeenRun						= "no"

'============================== Main Body =========================================================
On Error Resume Next
	Dim sCheck
	sCheck						= lcase(wshShell.RegRead (sBaseKey + "\HasBeenRun"))
	If sCheck					= "yes" then
		bHasBeenRun				= "yes"
	End If
On Error GoTo 0

If lcase(bHasBeenRun)			= "yes" then
	Quit()
End If

'now run the app
'the path to the exe is the actual path, the 1 means a normal window, vbFalse says don't wait for it to return
shell.Run "<path to exe>\ Workshare.Professional.UserInit.exe", 1, vbFalse



Function Quit()
	Set wshShell				= Nothing
	Set fso						= Nothing
	WScript.Quit
End Function

Open in new window

That's pretty easy to do.  You will create a script that checks to see if a registry key exists in HKCU, and if it does exit.  If it does not, then you run the application, and create the key on success.  

The only real question is your language.  :-)  I've done it before in vbscript, can theoreticallyb e done in batch, can absolutely be done in powershell.. what's your fancy?

You run the script from usrlogn1.cmd (I have an article here on how to use this if you aren't familiar with it).

How usrlogon processing works

I forgot to mention that I am new to all of this so maybe it can be done in a batch file?

I have read your documentation and it is totally over my head.  As stated above:  I am new to all of this.  :)

I will re-read again (and again) and try to create this and will let you know if it worked or not.  Thanks for getting back to me.
