Thanks for the ImportData update - now even easier to use. I think I follow what you're saying but would like to verify a couple of points.
-On your first screenshot, are you checking that the folder exists (the end of it is cut off)?
To condition out the desktops we need to use a folder condition as there are no ways to save a run once flag for a WSG inside of personalization.
-I have a backup/restore strategy (rather full wsg sync upon every logon) on workstations where WSGs check against conditions (environment variables). I am in the process of re-working it so that it checks against HKCU RunOnce values as well. This seems to work so far in test but from your statement above should I steer clear of checking for HKCU registry conditions and use folders/file/env variables conditions instead? While we're on the subject, is this the correct flow for logons: Pre-session, Windows Personalization, Pre-Desktop, Desktop Created where Windows Personalization checks conditions and applies personalization?
Its a folder condition, the same folder I'm setting in the EM policy.
The issue with using reg values for runonce conditions on WSGs is you have no way of laying down the stored runonce values on a new profile BEFORE the WSGs apply. So you've already ran your runonce item and its stored in a runonce key in a WSG. You logon to a new machine which it builds a blank profile. WSG conditions run and don't see the run once value so it applies everything including your run once flag after its evaluated as not being there. A folder on a share is the only thing that you can flag on that is persistent across machines and is available before WSG conditions are ran.
Oh, the folder is on a share and not local. I missed that part. Makes perfect sense if you want something that is persistent. Not noticing that your folder was remote, I thought you were saying WSG conditions should not use HCKU conditions due to timing issues or bugs. I see, now that's not the case. For my scenario, I want the select WSGs to sync down if it's a new local profile/first logon. I think we're golden. Thanks for the info!
