Using Win2k3, I know all about group policies, but never actually used them so I may not be 100% correct on what is allowable/deniable.
They are administrator set "rules" for group(s) to follow, where a group can hold many users. Think windows XP and its "Guest / Normal / Advanced / Administor" user types. Group Policies can be custom defined, unlike XP's defaults. It allows you to permit and deny, for example "Programmers", access only their related software / parts of the system. You would create the Policy, and add users to that group to make them follow it.
...I am not sure what your question is, dalehopper. Do you want the active desktop enabled when a certain user logs on as per the group policy, or do you want the the contents of the DHTML to change based on the user's rights?
I do not see why DHTML menus wouldn't work, unless the active desktop feature was disabled within the group policy - you can check these properties (assuming you're the admin) by going to: Start > Run: gpedit.msc. From there, expand 'User Configuration' > 'Administrative Templates' > 'Desktop' > 'Active Directory' to see what settings have been configured. By default AD should be allowed.
no please excuse me if i hadnt made sense
I have created a resource menu here -->
http://www.redcarcc.com/home/dale/ActiveDesktop/workingindex.htm this is applied to all staff that logon to my schools network by group policy through Active Directory, however if i was to replace the flash buttons with a DHTML menu (which i have already tried) then these do become a rollover menu but the links are not clickable, i know this is something to do with group policy stopping objects from spawning on the desktop, i was just wondering if anyone had the same or simlar problem
hope this make a bit more sense
