I specify a batch file under USER CONFIGURATION /POLICIES/WINDOWS SETTINGS/SCRIPT/LOGON of my GP to copy an ini file to a folder in users' roaming file.  

For some reason, the file does not show up until 3 mins after the user logon.  

Please advise where I should check.

Thanks.

Have you tried using Group Policy Preferences to push your file?
I would look into this method.

Yes, I have been trying GPP - FILE update but I am not seeing the file is being copied to the destination.  I use GPP - Registry update for other configurations and it does work.  

I specified \\server2\profiledir\%username%\appdata\roaming\vlc\vlc-qt-interface.ini in the destination of the GPP and the user login has r/w access.

The destination folder VLC is not created in \\server2\profiledir\%username%\appdata\roaming folder until the user launch VLC Player software the first time.  

Even the VLC folder is created in the roaming folder, I still do not see the file being copied after logout and log back in.   This is why I am going back to the legacy way and it works.

You're not being affected by this possibly?

It would be Windows 8.1+ that would be affected I suspect.
