Windows 7 Professional Scripts Folder

This is a new one on me. I am use to working with domains but this time I have just a single, standalone Window 7 Professional workstation. In the Users Properties they still have a "Login Script" path. In a AD Domain it points to C:\Windows\SystemVol\SysVol\Domain\Scripts\

   Where is it on a standalone Windows 7 Professional computer? All I can put in that fiels is a filename. If I specify more then that I get a "Not Relative" error.

How about if you make a share to the folder of the script.
Then put the share name to the script. e.g. \\share\folder\script.bat

Won't take it...
Steven CarnahanNetwork ManagerCommented:
As stated by NewVillageIT, you have to have a share created on the local machine and point to it.

1. Create folder.  I would create a folder c:\logonscript but you can call it whatever you want
2. Share the folder as Netlogon. (I think this is a mandatory name) If it is a standalone computer then I would set it be shared to everyone
3. Place the login script in the folder
4. point the user properties to point to the share  \\NETLOGON\<scriptname>.bat

Unless there is a reason to do so you could also just put the script in the Startup folder for either the user or all users and it will run without worrying about the user properties.

Try \\domainname\sysvol

Where domain name can also be workgroup/home group.  You can find it by right clicking computer and choosing properties.  

It should be listed under Full computer name

The startup folder is a known but not what I am trying to accomplish. Thanks.

   Here is the error I get when trying to set the Login Script: Path name \\Netlogon\system.bat is not a valid relative path name. Enter a valid relative path name.

OOPS. my mistake

LockDown32OwnerAuthor Commented:
I went the other way :) I just specified system.bat

In a domain that's all you do. Windows wills in the rest (it assumes the netlogon share). Looks like WIndows 7 is the same way :)
