    Hi All,

    I am new to the log on script i need some advice

    what i want to do is set up 2 log in scripts the first one would do the following

    > Delete all temp files form the system
    > set date format to DD/MM/YYYY
    > set time format to HH:MM
    > set PC time to the same time as the server
    > Set the shell option to C:\BarPoS\BarPoS.exe

    the second one would do the following
    > Delete all temp files form the system
    > set date format to DD/MM/YYYY
    > set time format to HH:MM
    > set PC time to the same time as the server

    The second one is used by Admin user ID and the first one is by PoSUser (locked down)

    While the script is running i would like it NOT To show the DOS window but show a graphcial HTML page

    How can I do this?

    advice or code MOST welcome as I have NO IDEA how to do this


    Thanks

    Andy

    1) what language do you want to write your login script in?
    2) Is this on a domain?

    3) I would recommend using group policy to set the windows shell (see this for more info on setting the shell and a locked down desktop over group policies).

    Actually, you can use group policies to delete the temp folder at logoff as well.. you could create a batch file to do a recursive search for all *.tmp files, but that's really over kill and will slow down your login significantly.

    You could also create a custom ADM template to use in group policies to change the regional/time settings that you want to change.
