Hello guys

We have setup a small test domain to test vista before going on to migrate all.

now in windows 2003 server , redirection folder are pre define as my documents,applicationdata,desktop...

so in vista there is "documents" and not my documents. This is giving conflict while mapping.

so is there an update by microsoft for this purpose or am i going wrong and all confused.

We can change from regedit(Vista) but thats not the solution.

so help please

This is normal Vista behaviour - the "my" ideology has been dropped. So instead of "My Documents" it's just "Documents", instead of "My Computer" its just "Computer", and so on. Windows 2003 came out before Vista so adopts the "My" ideology.
