|Run Startup Programs in a Command Prompt (Windows 2000/XP)|
Category: Home > Windows > Accessories > Command Processor
This setting allows you to specify commands or programs to be automatically executed whenever a command processor is launched. For example, to set environment variables or parameters using a batch file.
Open your registry and find the key below.
Create a new string value called "AutoRun" and set the value to equal the commands to be automatically executed. Multiple commands should be seperated by double ampersands e.g. "command1 && command2".
The changes will take effect the next time the command processor is used.
