We are running MS Server 2003. We have written a program in VB to record the user name and time in and out of the lab to track computer usage. These are users in our domain. I am having trouble running the files from the group policy. If I read correctly you must use either a .bat file or a windows scripting file to use the group policy settings to run a program on logon and logoff. I tried a bat file calling the logon.exe file. Doesn't work. I tried calling the logon.exe directly. Doesn't work.
I can run the logon file locally by calling a .bat file. But I cannot figure out how to call the logoff file. What can I use to trigger the logoff file to execute? Both files are writing to a database on the network.
I am not familiar with windows scripting files. Should I try to covert to script to call the files?
Any information could be helpful. Am under a time constraint of course!
