Windows 95 Logon Script does not Process Correctly

Your Windows 95 client does not process your logon script, terminates the script prematurely, or the script stops responding (hangs) during processing.


There are several reasons that your client may not be properly processing your script file.

  • There is an environment variable such as %USERNAME% specified in the logon script. Windows 95 does not understand all of the environment variables that Windows NT does. In order to have this type of functionality, you must use a third-party script application, such as KiXtart.
  • There may be a batch file that has been called that has not terminated properly.
  • User Manager for Domains is not configured to launch the Script file such as the file name is mistyped. This is configured in User Manager from User/Properties on the menu bar and selecting the Profile button.
  • The file does not exist in the Netlogon share on every domain controller in the logon domain.


You may see different behavior on a computer running Windows NT Workstation or Windows NT Server. For full Environment Variable functionality, upgrade to Windows NT Workstation or Windows NT Server.
