Running commands on startup

Recommended Posts

LeeSylvester

Hey guys,

Do anyone know of the best way to force a dos command to run when windows starts that can be set or removed from AutoIt? I don't want this to be in the users face, so putting a bat file in the startup menu won't do. Can AutoIt add and remove items from boot.ini easily enough, or is there a simpler way?

Thanks,

Lee

How about using the regitry ? fx.

RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run","mystringname""REG_SZ",@DesktopDir & "myscript.au")

this will make a script on ur desktop called myscript.au3 run every time u startup windows.

Hi,

Thanks for that, but I don't want to run an AutoIt script at startup, but a series of DOS commands that are administered from an AutoIt app. I won't be registering AutoIt on the machine, but will use the dll locally, so I don't think the above is ideal. Can I alter that to run DOS commands?

Thanks,

Lee

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"BAT.bat"="\"C:\\BAT.bat"

or

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"BAT"="\"C:\\BAT.bat"

And ofcourse there's always the option to compile your AU3 scripts that run dos commands to executable files and put those exe files in the runkey. That way you still don't have to register AutoIt on the machine. You can even make it FileInstall() other files you need such as dll's. This all seems obvious however, so I might be missing some point here... ?
