Kixtart Entry in Scriptpath for Test Script

I want to test a kixtart script in a 2008 Environment where Kixtart has been installed.
However I just want to call the specific Test kixtart Script.

I have put the below in the script path of the test user object ...

\\Domain\SYSVOL\scripts\TestScript.kix - No Working ?

I then created a batch file (See Below) ...

--------start--------
%0\..\kix32 %0\..\TestScript.kix
 -------- end --------

And then put the below in the script path of the test user object ...

\\Domain\SYSVOL\scripts\TestScript.bat - Not Working

There is a live kixtart script which is called by putting "Kix32.exe" in the users script path.

Any advise on what to put in the script path of the user to test the script will be welcome.

Thank You in Advance

When using the "Logon script" field in an AD user's properties, enter only the script name, no folder; the client will by default look into %logonserver%\netlogon share and expect the script name from the AD properties there.
The "script name" in your case would be kix32.exe, and only the argument (the path to the .kix file) should be the full path:
kix32.exe "%LogonServer%\netlogon\TestScript.kix"
Or, if you want to use the batch script, just TestScript.bat
