SBS login procedure: Printer attachment

On an SBS 2008 with roaming profiles I deattach/attach printers to the users dependant on their location (client used). I have a working procedure (let's call it AttachPrinters) for this (based on con2prt and VBS scripting) and integrated this procedure into the SBS login procedure (group policy).

Now sometimes it lloks like AttachPrinters does run before other system login procedures (?) which also attach printers have been finished.

How can I "snychronize" the system login procedures with AttachPrinters so it definitely runs  a f t e r  all system login procedures? Should I delay the start of AttachPrinters for n minutes after login?

Many thanks - Michael

Multithreading is kind of the point in newer architectures so there is rarely a "do this, then this , then this" to startup except that computer policies apply prior to login and user policies apply after login.

You did not say where you linked your script in the GP but I am not sure its relevant. If you want to make certain it is the last item executed, a delay would be your only real option.
