Running a program everytime a user login (before the Desktop environment is loaded)

7 posts in this topic

Hi!

I made a program/service to run when the user log in the system but before the desktop environment is available to the user. So, the RunOnce key did the job for most of the users (but the common users), i managed to add the value on the key at every time the user login, so i would be executed everytime (as i planned).

My question is, is there anyway to run this key for all users in the system (all local users)? Or is there any other way to do the same thing? I tried to make it a service but didn't work either.

Sorry for my bad english.

Thanks in advance,

Gustavo.

PS: The code is included, since the autoit isn't multithreading i had to make 2 executables.

yes, instead of the user "RUN" and "RUNONCE" you can use the same folder from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. this will be executed at startup for all users.

Hi, thanks for the answer.

But i'm already using the LOCAL MACHINE key, like that: RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce", "Alerta", "REG_SZ", "C:\ctrl.exe")

But it doesn't work.

Little known secret... look up the "Userinit" entry of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon ...

If you add a path to this it executes as SOON as you log in... you have to be careful manipulating this value... however.

I offer no guarantees... research yourself about the syntax of the entry and the pitfalls... but, I have used it.

runonce will only execute once.

use "RUN" folder.

do you understand ou deveria falar portugues?

I understand it perfectly and also tried so many times. If i use Run folder, the desktop is loaded before the program, so it won't do what it's supposed to.

Thank you,

Gustavo.

ps: E não há necessidade de se falar português.
