Run program when cpu starts up

Recommended Posts

AutID

Hello,
 

So as the tittle says i want my script to run when cpu starts up.
I have never done this before so i dont know much about this.
I tried these two:

RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun", @ScriptName, "REG_SZ", @DesktopDir & "myScript.exe")
RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionGroup PolicyScriptsStartup", @ScriptName, "REG_SZ", @DesktopDir & "myScript.exe")

but none works.
 

I have never used RegWrite before. So some good tips would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

Hi,

Run gpedit.msc

Browse to Windows Settings and then Scripts (Logon/Logoff).

You can start from there and investigate where it store to the registry exactly.

If you found it, let me know, I would like to know that also :)

Is it important to have the app run BEFORE you log into windows or you just want it to run once you get to the desktop automatically? If it is when you get to the desktop, just use the startup folder. Not sure about Windows 8 but I know on 7 and earlier it applies.
