It might sound complicated, but it is possible. Your best bet is to use the AT command in a startup script. Make sure you modify the Computers GPO, not the Domain Controllers, and make sure your Domain Controllers are not in the Computers Group.

First step:
Create a batch file, name it whatever you'd like, and place it in a system folder such as System32. For this example, we will call it "shutdown.bat"

Inside the batch file, type in "shutdown -r -f" without the quotes, and save.

Second step:
Draft up a startup script to run this command at the command line.

AT 2:00am /every:m,t,w,th,f,s,su "%systemroot%\system32\shutdown.bat"

You may change the time or days that you want it to run at.

What this will do, is by GPO, the startup script will run every time the computer boots up. The startup script will internally schedule the reboot for what ever time is specified. When that time hits, it will reboot the computer, and run the startup script again when the computer turns on. This way, if for any reason the schedule is dropped out after reboot, it will reschedule it.

AT is a better command because it does not require the Scheduler service to be running. It is more reliable. :)

Good luck, and if I can help you further, please let me know. And don't forget to vote! Thanks!

We have P3 running on a Windows XP Sp3 machine. At least once a week this program crashes when the engineer goes to hit the schedule button in P3 it literally freezes everything and the only way to...

I dont think this has much to do with Primavera itself.. Ive experienced this alot on our network with other "older" software applications that are 16 bit programs. First find the launch icon for P3 and right click it, under the compatibility option set it for an older platform "win98". It may be related to how the scheduler allocates memory when it runs. (its probably just the scheduler application part of P3 thats a problem) Might be useful to try and locate scheduler in the P3 program folder and do the compatibility mode setting for its launch icon too. Other causes may be restrictions in place if you are part of a windows domain network (ask your network admin) as group policy settings can prevent 16 bit applications from running. And lastly Ive seen Group policy folder permission settings blocking users from certain windows 16 bit program modules as well, all depending on how the program was made. Talk with your network guy, ask him if you are part of a domain GPO, if yes. look into the permission issue. If this is a Stand alone home style computer, Not joined to any network / domain ect. look at my first few comments. oh ya, also verify DEP "Data Execution Prevention" is not enabled for this program. Hope that helps, please write a comment if you need any clarification on anything above. Gurvy

Server2003 AD problem

go to active directory - users and computers, set a home folder in the profile tab of the users options,

also if you go into the gpo manager (group policy object) and i think the option of folder redirection is under windows - administrative templates

to open the gpo go start -> run -> mmc

file -> add/remove snap-in and select the gpo editor you can set this to enforce, if you want to do specific users you will have to create a new security group and add the users into it, then select the options that you want them to have, you can even restrict specific operations when they are logged on from there.

hope thats ok for you, if you need clarification just ask

Dear Sir How Can i USE One-Wallpaper For All User In Active Driectory Thank You Md shiful Isalm 01713489184

Hello, you would need to create a GPO that gets applied to all computers in your AD domain. Within the GPO you can specify the file name of the background image you plan to use. Be careful of different screen resolutions as the image may be distorted from machine to machine especially if you have Desktops & Laptops. In that case you'll need 2 different GPOs pointing to different image files or you can do some more intelligent scripting to determine screen res.
Should be set here:
\User Configiguration\Administrative Templates\Desktop\Active Desktop\
  • Enable Active Desktop; and
  • Active Desktop Wallpaper
Good luck!
