The script files can be Batch Files, Command Shell Files, Kixtart Files, VBScript Files, Powershell, etc.  These script engines vary in their execution method and interaction with the Windows desktop environment.   SYNERGIX AD Client Extensions provides various options for each one of the scripts methods listed above to control the interaction with the desktop.

At times, it is desired that the scripts execute exactly in the same manner as the Windows operating system handles the execution when the user is logging in to the desktop interactively.
