    Hi,

    Joined a Windows 2000 terminal server in to a Windows 2003 domain and
    the users get new profiles when they log in (as expected).

    Trying to put an icon on every desktop but putting it in C:\D&S\All
    Users\Desktop doesn't make it appear for the users. Where should it go
    (or what else is wrong)?

    TIA

  2. Hello,

    Thank you for using newsgroup!

    I think there is something wrong on "All users" folder or your profile. I
    have the following suggestions:
    1. Check security on "All users" folder, make sure everyone and
    Users(Computername\Users) have Read & Execute/List folder contents/Read
    permissions.
    2. Create a local user on the Terminal server to see if the new account has
    the problem. If this account is fine, I recommend you to re-create the user
    profile.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, but everyone already has those rights. Is there some group
    policy/security setting that might have been changed, "Hide Common
    Folders", or something?

  4. Hello,

    I did not find out that policy. I think there is error on user to load
    profile. I recommend you to enable userenv log on that Windows 2000
    Terminal server, follow this KB artilce:
    How to enable user environment debug logging in retail builds of Windows
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;221833

    Please send me the userenv.log file into , so that I
    can perform further research.
