I am attempting to locate where I need to add the certain .EXE's for the program I installed within group policy on my domain. I found where to add the path in GPOE under user config,  but am unable to locate where to add the .exe's.

Any assitance is greatly appreciated!!!

When you go to the GPO you don't see anything under the source  See an example from my lab

It is also probably going to be an .msi if you did it via group policy

Thanks

If you use a script or exe in you Group policy you need to store the exe files /scripts on the Sysvol folder of your domain controller

Mike...I may have mislead you...the program is installed on the workstations on the domain. All of the workstations have one common user and that user is set up in GP. The workstations run 2 programs at logon, and I was able to find where I add the path for my new program to run at logon as well under user config. My problem lies in that in order for the program to run at logon...I need to add (4) exe's to the group policy.

I hope this makes better sense...and thanks for answering my question!!!

you could put it in a logon script i.e.
logon.bat
--
@echo off
@echo Starting logon programs
start program1.exe
start c:\program files\program2\program2.exe
start c:\program files\program3\program3.exe
start c:\program files\program4\program4.exe
exit
---

Startup/Shutdown Scripts are located in
Computer Configuration\Windows Settings

Logon/Logoff Scripts are located in
User Configuration\Windows Settings
Logon Script
