Interacting with logged on user/user's environmental variables



  • Shane Corellian

    Hi Eddie,

    You need to use the Run As Logged On User. If more than one user is logged on the PDQ Deploy will run as the first user returned from the API call.

    Running as Deploy User (Interactive) solves a few potential problems such as needing an interactive session (some installations require it) that is guaranteed to have Administrator level access. When you need to access the logged on user's environment, however, then you need to use Logged On User.

    **Note** - If the step being performed as Logged On User requires administrative access the step may fail if the user is not an administrator.

    (Moved from Inventory - Questions forum to Deploy - Questions.

    Thanks.  I am disappointed I missed that in the documentation...I blame the size of my monitor. 8-)

    Shane, further to this question - how would I be able to copy to all users %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

    I can't seem to find the right way!

    going %appdata% brings me right to appdata\roaming

    I'm trying to copy the c:\Users\cdma\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Bookmark (file is called bookmark, has no extension)

    To provide all my users with the same default bookmarks.
