Start AutoIt script together with Windows?

Recommended Posts

WhiteAvenger

Hi,

is it possible to launch a script together with Windows, so that it runs user-independently, i.e. always runs no matter which user is logged on?

I want to use it to control the volume on a PC so that people can't turn it up too loud...

Thanks

Place it in the "All Users" start-up folder

Nah, I want it to run before the users log in, so it already runs before the Windows login sound is played...

I read something about services, how can I do that for AutoIt?

Thanks, that helped me a lot!

However, I have a problem: I had the idea of using the 1st method you suggested (the one in the FAQ) to make a script which automatically logs me in if I press a certain combination. However, using Send() doesn't seem to work in the Windows login screen. Is that a fault with my PC or a general error? And can I fix or work around it?

See here "CTRL ALT DEL"

CTRL ALT DEL is a low level keyboard hook that is interceptd by GINA (graphical identification and authentication) that is suppose to lock out things like key loggers and the like, so for that and NTLM authenticaiton (prompts on a secure webpage for example) you can't interact with those windows.

So basically, I can't use Send() in the welcome screen. Right?

Right.

If you're not on a domain, there are options built into Windows to auto-logon a user, but it requires storing the password in plaintext in the registry...
