Startup Script Win2k/WinXP




I am currently running a printer startup script via a batch file off of a
Win2k server for Win2k clients, however when I attempt to run the startup
script for WinXP clients I am unsuccessfull. The batch I use is below:

Create a batch file (e.g. printers.bat) containing lines of the following
form (the PrintUIEntry bit is case-sensitive):

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /n \\printserver\printer1
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /n \\printserver\printer2
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /n \\printserver\printer3

The script runs fine in Win2k, is there any reason the script will run for
Win2k but not for XP?
Thanks in advance!


When do I run "process explorer," it seems the problem lies somewhere during
the startup. Also, did you have to set any specific permissions for the
script to run in XP, mine is working great in 2000, but not XP.
