Hello,

In the Environment Tab in AD Users and Computers, there is a check box to 'Start the following program at logon'.  I am looking for a script or query to show all users that are configured with this box checked.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

TB

Hi,

You would need to query the attribute value called "TerminalServicesInitialProgram".
This below gives you exactly what you are looking for.

You could run the following powershell script based on the above recommendation:
$users = Get-AdUser -Filter *
Foreach($usr in $users)
{
    $u=Get-ADUser $usr
    $user = [adsi]"LDAP://$($U.DistinguishedName)"
    try
    {
        $user.PSBase.Invokeget("TerminalServicesInitialProgram")
    }
    Catch
    {
        if($_.exception.message -like "*The directory property cannot be found*")
        {
            write-host "$usr hasn't been set this option"
        }
    }
}

Open in new window
