comment Win7 Domain User Profile- Desktop Icon management best practices request
We've tried this and it brings up a host of unintended problems. It does work, but it adds a level of complexity that we are trying to avoid.

comment Win7 Domain User Profile- Desktop Icon management best practices request
@TomO'Connor - You are missing the point of the question. I want to be able to have a good end user experience when the computer is disconnected from the network. Right now, the computer is unusable since the folder redirection of a user profile folder to a network share causes us to "loose" the profile. The desktop and start menu become blank and the only way to open a program is to navigate Program files. Something our users don't have the skill to do.

@pauska I edited the above post to be more specific. When I say "network is down" I mean there is no connection. Generally, this happens when someone unplugs a machine.

comment How to get DCOMperm.exe from Microsoft
Thanks @jscott, that seems to have done the trick. Unfortunately, fixing this causes even more errors to crop up. I think that has more to do with the program throwing the errors though.

Looks like the sample is C++ code. you have to also get Visual Studio C++ and it seems to build properly now.

I was able to get the source file, install Visual Studio C# Express 2010 and import the .sln file into Visual Studios. I can't actually read anything since it throws an error that ".vcproj files are not readable by this version of Visual Studio".

comment “CREATOR OWNER” NTFS group always has special permissions in windows
I'm sorry if I was unclear in my question, but I am not asking "how Creator Owner works", but more "why the permission control behaves in a certain way". I understand that "Creator Owner" is a dynamic permission that allows me to limit what a user can do to files they create. I don't feel it is lazy to use this in this situation because of the dynamic usage of this folder. We already have a per user private folder structure. This location is more for a specific project where users come and go at random.
