Description turboc 2005-05-04 13:57:46 UTC
After installing the application for all users, the quickstarter applet is added to the individual Starup folder and not the All Users Startup folder. This causes problems when the individual Start Menus are redirected to a single network location using Group Policy, since the application will attempt to start for users that may not have OOo installed.

of: I've had a look in m113. It works as designed. It's correct that this link is vreated for every indivual user. Maybe we can change this later, when the startup behaviour for OOo will be redesigned.

The problem with the current design is that Windows admins can redirect start menu folders for all users to a common location when using Group Policy in an Active Directory environment. This allows the admin to manage a common set of icons for applications that are assigned to all users. When OOo is installed with this start menu redirection in place, the icons become assigned to network users that do not have the application installed on their PC. In this situation, it would be more appropriate for the icons to be created in % systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs. I look forward to a possible feature enhancement. Thank you.
