Control Panel does not open after reboot

5 posts in this topic

I cannot seem to open up control panel after I reboot the computer. Before I shut down I update the registry to perform a runonce so that my runs after I reboot. The first thing I want to do after reboot is to open control panel. Is there way to open control panel after doing a reboot and using the runonce?

Currently:

I am issuing a Shutdown(6) and then upon reboot I have used the command run("control").

@lettierb..I dont think u can start many applications using Runonce....the name sounds confusing..u are not actually running a program only once..its actually being run before Windows finishes loading...so I would just put the script in Run....

I trying to configure a computer from scratch and it requires a lot of shutdowns. I do not want to keep click the script over and over again, so I am update the registry using

RegWrite ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce", "Run", "REG_SZ", "C:\MGC_Drivers\install_all_driver.exe")

This run my script after every reboot....You are that windows is not fully loaded at that time. Is there way to wait for it to be loaded before I start my Script?

@lettierb...No, windows will never finish loading when you launch your program. Thats what I said before about the "Runonce" it is only used run crap before windows fully loads. You need to write to the following registry instead:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

After you script is done and you dont want it to kick off on the next startup, just delete your entry.
