Hi All,

I am using a VBScript RedirectMy.vbs to move user folder i n Windows 8.1 using Activesetup. The Activesetup has the two registry hive to move user folder(My document and my picture) to a network drive.

The user folder is not redrecting to the network drive on the very first login (when active setup run). However if i am loging off and login back its getting set.

I have attached the vbscript. The same VBScript works fine in Windows 7. The user folders are moving on the very first login in windows 7.

Any thought why the VBScript does not work in Windows 8.1? Does the log off login is really require ?

Thanks in advance........................
