How to run a batch every time my machine boots - Win 2000 Pro
« on: August 30, 2007, 12:38:28 AM »
I need to run a batchfile every time my machine boots.
Problem is  I run Windows 2000 Pro with several users and I
don't want to have to log on the system to make the batch file run.
(I tried to put it in the Startup directory)

Where should I put the batch file to make sure it always runs on a boot?

    Try putting it or a shorcut in the all users/startup folder.
    If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

      If I put the .bat file in the Startup-directory I'll have to log in to run the file.
      I want this batch-file to run if the machine boots unexpectedly..

        If you put it in the startup under a profile, yes. If you put it in all users/startup, no. If you don't want it this way, do as ghostdog suggested.

        You are right, off course.
        Thanks a lot for your answers, it works just fine now.
