Whilst I was building up a Windows 2 Go USB stick, in testing we realised that our mapped drives were not being created from the log-on vbs script.
After a bit of testing we noticed that the script ran 5 minutes after being logged on. Now, as it was exactly 5 minutes we knew something was either delaying it or it there was a new setting in Windows 8 which we hadn’t noticed.
After some digging we found the below group policy setting which is new in Windows 8.1 which was pre-set to delay logon scripts. This is found:
