Login script fails to run on an XP station

    Hello!

    I am not sure if this is an SBS issue or an XP issue, so I posted to both
    newsgroups.

    I have a new SBS 2003 server with seven XP Pro workstations. All but one of
    the XP stations ran the SBS_LOGIN_SCRIPT.BAT file upon logon, and got
    Outlook 2003 installed automatically.

    The remaining devil-child refuses to run the batch file with an error that
    the file "is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable
    program or batch file." I added a pause statement at the end of the file to
    stop it so I could see any errors, which is how I know it gets the above
    error.

    I found many articles on Google and the KB pointing to path problems or
    missing entries in the PATHEXT= statement, but all those settings check out.
    I cannot run any EXE or batch files from the network using this computer.
    Everthing else runs perfectly. All workstations are members of the domain.

    The output of the "set" command shows the following (I replaced their actual
    domain name):

    C:\>set
    ALLUSERSPROFILE=C:\Documents and Settings\All Users APPDATA=C:\Documents and
    Settings\trice.DOMAINNAME\Application Data
    CLASSPATH=C:\Program Files\Canon Creative\PhotoDeluxe\AdobeConnectables;
    CommonProgramFiles=C:\Program Files\Common Files
    COMPUTERNAME=TRICE
    ComSpec=C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe
    HOMEDRIVE=C:
    HOMEPATH=\Documents and Settings\trice.DOMAINNAME LOGONSERVER=\\DC
    NUMBER_OF_PROCESSORS=2
    OS=Windows_NT
    Path=C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;C:\Program
    Files\Common Files\Adaptec Shared\System
    PATHEXT=.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH
    PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE=x86
    PROCESSOR_IDENTIFIER=x86 Family 15 Model 2 Stepping 9, GenuineIntel
    PROCESSOR_LEVEL=15
    PROCESSOR_REVISION=0209
    ProgramFiles=C:\Program Files
    PROMPT=$P$G
    SESSIONNAME=Console
    SystemDrive=C:
    SystemRoot=C:\WINDOWS
    TEMP=C:\DOCUME~1\TRICE~1.DOMAIN\LOCALS~1\Temp
    TMP=C:\DOCUME~1\TRICE~1.DOMAIN\LOCALS~1\Temp
    USERDNSDOMAIN=DOMAINNAME.COM
    USERDOMAIN=DOMAINNAME
    USERNAME=trice
    USERPROFILE=C:\Documents and Settings\trice.DOMAINNAME windir=C:\WINDOWS

    One entry I find curious is that it claims to be a dual-CPU system. To my
    knowledge, it only has one CPU, but I could be mistaken, as this is an
    inherited network. Does anyone have an idea why this beast will not run the
    login script?

    I thank you PROFUSELY if you can help!
