41.3. Force login scripts to be run before startup folder is executed

Background

Network drives must be mapped prior to launching Worldox.  If users are launching Worldox via their startup folders, and network drives are being mapped in a login script, you must take steps to ensure that the login script completes before the Startup folder is processed.  This involves setting a group policy.
Note: Lately, we've been configuring the network drive mappings using group policy (instead of a login script) - something you might want to consider...

Procedure

This is achieved by editing the group policy for workstations on the domain.  To apply this change:

  • Locate the appropriate branch in the Active Directory Users and Computers tool, which can be accessed by running 'dsa.msc', or via the Start Menu > Administrative Tools > Active Directory Users and Computers (in Trumpet's system, this is the branch called 'trumpetinc.local' - yours will be different):

  • Right-click and choose Properties

  • Switch to the Group Policy tab

  • Select the policy you want to edit (in Trumpet's system, this is called 'Default Domain Policy' - yours may be different):

  • Click the Edit button

  • This will bring up the Group Policy Object Editor for the selected policy

  • Navigate to the following branch:

    Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Scripts

  • Check to ensure that the 'Run logon scripts synchronously' value is set to 'Enabled'.  If it is not, enable it by double clicking on the value and changing the state to Enabled

  • Click OK to save the changes

  • Navigate to the following branch:

    Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon

  • Check to ensure that the 'Always wait for the network at computer startup and logon' value is set to 'Enabled'.  If it is not, enable it by double clicking on the value and changing the state to Enabled

  • Click OK to save the changes

  • Close the Group Policy Object Editor window

  • Click OK to close the Active Directory branch properties dialog
