 Logon script

I think I am missing something here !

I have made a simple (actually VERY simple) VBScript.

If I double-click on it directly from \\logonserver\netlogon after having
logged on, it works like a charm.

If I write it's name (login.vbs) in the "Logon script" field in
usermanager - nothing happens. It doesn't run ?!??

I am really at a loss here !

The script is placed on the NT4 Primary Domain Controller, and it happens
both on Win9x and NT Wrkst 4 / 5.

 Logon script

The login script file name is used by lmscript.exe on the workstation which executes the script (and produces the logon script message box). This program can only handle .bat and .cmd files so you cave to have the name of a batch file which in turn calls the .vbs file.
I use the batch file to detect if WSH is installed and then run wscript script.wsh.
The .wsh file specifies the script to run and no timeout. (you can create a .wsh file automatically by right clicking on the .vbs file and setting the timeout to 0, clicking on OK will create the .wsh file, a bit like .pif files)
