Just another painful experience with M$ Vista/Windows 7.
I have done the same as you with XP and it worked a treat haven't tried with
Vista but I have had other issues that I'm working through.

Strange differences in desktops between different user profiles on a laptop.

There must be a setting I'm missing but one shows small icons as small icons
and another shows small icons as medium icons.

No major issue just an irritation for consistency.

Hi Folks,

This is happening on Windows 7 Pro.

We move the location of My Documents to the server to back up Desktop,
Favorites, Documents, etc.

We map folks to H:\ as their home folder

Well this didn't cause any problem in XP Pro but in Windows 7 if you try to
install software it comes up with an error pointing to H:\ not being

I was assuming this has to do with environment variables so I changed both
to C:\ rather then the concatenated version Windows defaults to.
That did not work.

I've TRIED finding a solution via Google but am apparently not hitting on
the right wording,

Any ideas?
