I use AD GPO to deploy a lot of software in MSI files. I also use RIS to deploy Windows XP Pro. I also use WSUS to deploy all my Windows Updates. My goal is to deploy XP with RIS, Office and a bunch of other apps with GPO and fully patch the system as quick as possible. Right now when I use RIS to setup my XP Clients they are able to install XP fully and on their first boot after XP Setup they start getting all the apps I have setup via GPO's managed software, but the last step is to apply all the patches I downloaded a VBS that will start Windows Upate and download and install all the waiting updates and then if the computer needs it, it will reboot the computer. This works great. The thing I need to know is if the Windows startup script (not user login script) runs before or after the GPO managed software deployment and if it runs in WScript or CScript. The reason being that I want to be sure things like Office and other programs are installed first then the VBS script runs, because if the VBS runs then issues the reboot and then the GPO managed software starts to deploy it could cause problems. And I need to know if the startup script is Cscript or Wscript so I know if I should remove some of the statements that echo the output.
