Does anyone know a way to run a login script minimized. For example, everytime you logon to an NT domain, your login script runs in a DOS windows. Is ther any way to run the login script minimzed so users don't see a DOS windows open up?

Thanks.

in your logon script name section of your user environment profile (where you list your logon batch file or cmd file) try this:

cmd.exe /c start /min [name of batch file]

cmd.exe also has some other flags which maybe usefull so type cmd.exe /?

If your users close the logon script window, hide it.
Navigate to HKEY_USERS\<each user>\Console

Edit or Add Value the following two REG_DWORD values:

WindowSize        and with the Radix at Hex, set it to 050005

WindowPosition and with the Radix at Hex, set it to 04FF06FF

This makes the Window very small and positions it off screen so they can't see it and hence can't close it.

If when running a command prompt, this windows is invoked, just maximize it, right click the title bar, and size/position it using the Layout tab in Properties. When you click OK, check Modify shortcut....
