Hi Folks, I have a list of XP desktops in a text file (complist.txt) that I need to copy a file to. The file iManO2k.dot needs to replace the older file on each desktop. My problem is that using REPLACE I'm running into an argument issue as the file is in \Program Files. Is there a clever way I can copy the file to each machine, while maintaining my robocopy logs? Any help would be appreciated.
So, how long has this tool been included with Windows? I found it while looking for a very simple way to sync data between a local 'My Documents' folder and a network backup location (for laptop users that need their data on their PC at all times). I'm using a very simple... ROBOCOPY source destination /MIR /PURGE Now, I'd like to be able to include some sort of graphical window for my users. Something with a, "Please wait while your data is synchronized" and a progress bar that shows the user approximately how much time remains. Any idea how I could do this? Maybe getting a list of what needs to be copied first, then starting the copy? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've dabbled in vb code before, but very little. -- Posted 'as is'. If there are any spelling and/or grammar mistakes, they were a direct result of my fingers and brain not being synchronized or my lack of caffeine. Mike Brearley

We're in the process of moving from Novell NetWare to MS servers for file & print sharing. I'm working on some things related to the login script. We want our overall login vb script to run "synchronously" with login so the user doesn't get their Windows desktop until after the main login script is finished. This is working as expected. However, we have a few things that we want to kick off from the login script, but not hold up the login process for. So we have the following line in the main login script that calls another vb script with the "False" parameter to tell the scripting engine to not bother to wait until the called script returns before continuing. Thus the main login script ends, the end user gets their Windows desktop and can begin working, but this new script is supposed to keep running in the background doing some things. 'Call the Asynchronous script wshShell.Run "R:\Scripts\LoginAsync.vbs", 0, False The problem is that it doesn't. The async script launches but as soon as the main login script terminates, so does my called async script. If I run the main login script manually it works as expected (the async script continues to run even after the main script terminates) but when we assign the main script to the GPO to make it a login script, it no longer works. Why won't my async script continue to run after the main script exits when we set the main script as a GPO based login script? Thank you.
