Launching .bat on login RRS feed

  • Question

  • just as a little background of what i have tried so far to launch the .bat at login:

    1. used task scheduler

    2. put shortcut in startup folder

    both of these fail.

    the .bat file is in folder in program files directory (i.e. c:\program files\bat\bat.bat). the only time i have had this .bat file run successfully is when i open a cmd as an admin, path to the directory, and run the bat.

    1. open up cmd as admin

    2. cd "/program files\bat"

    3. bat.bat

    however when i try to schedule this or use startup folder this does not work. the account i am using is a local admin account. i have tried .bat file to open cmd to the directory and then launch the .bat, however i believe it is failing because it is not truely running as an admin. i have gone into the shortcut properties of and clicked the open to have run as an admin. i have even tried using runas within at .bat to launch the .bat.

    any info or help would be appreciated to have this .bat to launch at login. thanks.

  • Your issue is about how to use the Task Scheduler.  Please refer to the documentation on the Task Scheduler and numerous blogs that describe how to use it.
