Hi,

We have a Citrix xenapp5 running on an old Windows 2003 terminal server box.

I need every user to run a batch file when they logon.

Please advise how I can do it by modifying the local group policy or if there is another way.

Thanks.

if you want run the the batch and then to launch app then use NewVillageIT update, IF you want to publish batch file in citrix then try this, when you publish application use this "START BATCHFILE" "PROGRAM TO RUN"

We present the entire desktop of this domain member Citrix server to a  department users only.  We do not want the batch file being run when other users login to other servers in the domain.

All I have to do is to add that batch file in the local policy of that specific departmental citrix server, right?

I plan to run gpedit.msc on that department Citrix server locally and add the batch file in the local policy.  Will that be safe enough?
