Last Program to load

8 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

wd appreciate if you cd enlighten me as to how can I make it such that the compiled exe program is the last to run after a user has logged into Windows....meaning....after processing the Run keys (all) and Startup folders. My program should be the last one.

Thanks.

That program will show you which programs will be opened and let you remove them, but Windows will still launch the programs in each of these Folders and Registry Keys without waiting for them to finish.

One approach may be to poll the information that the startup control panel references. Have that polled by the exe you make, and the exe would pause until all other apps have started. If a new process is added, the exe would detect the new app the next time the system starts. I hope I made sense there.
