Explorer.exe (UI) and Windows Explorer

Recommended Posts


I have compiled an exe file in Autoit to replace the windows shell (explorer.exe).

To replace it i have changed the following reg value:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell

from Explorer.exe To myAutoitFile.exe.

When the user logges on to the workstation he gets a windows that asks a question.

if the user answers NO then he is presented with a message and right after will be logged off.

(Working fine)

If the user answers YES i want to open the users desktop (UI).

The command i used is: Run("Explorer.exe")

The problem is the command will launch windows explorer and not the Full UI (taskbar, etc..)

Can someone help?
