I am trying to setup a group policy to start a program when a user logs in. I created the policy and linked it to the domain. But i have a question about the file path. If i use the file path C:\Program Files (x86)\Random Program\Randomprogram.exe are there going to be issues with the PC's running a 32-bit operating system recognizing that extension.

1) If the path and/or filename have spaces in them, you may need to enclose the entire string within double-quotes. For example:


"C:\Program Files (x86)\Random Program\Randomprogram.exe"



2) No, there won't be a problem with a 32-bit version of Windows recognizing a ".exe" file extension.  The .executable file extension has been around for decades.
