Startup logon vbs script not running for a particular user profile (Windows 7)


We have a computer that's running a legacy application and can't be redeployed. The desktop is running Windows 7 for some reason the logon script does not run for that user profile but it will run successfully for any other new user that logs on the machine. We can't rebuild the profile since the legacy app is tied to it.

Any help on how to get that start up logon script to execute without having to rebuild the profile?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The following reference has a long list of items to check to ensure your script runs:

That said, if you still have issues correcting this, you can always try adding the script to the user's "startup" folder:
C:\Users\{USER-ID}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

This will run it each time at startup...

Again, things to check are in that 1st link above... Make sure the user has access to the script both in terms of where it resides (hard drive, network, etc.) and permissions...

First place I would check is the AD user and Computers and in that user check to see that in the user profile tab that the logon script location is correct--may be a simple typing mistake. If there is no mistake I would put a pause command in the start of the logon script to see if the script does actually run but for some reason errors out
