In autoexec put "c:\windows\win.exe", assuming you used windows as the install directory.

If C:\Windows is in the Path statement then a simple WIN in the last line of the autoexec.bat should do it.

Remember that individual entries in the path statement must be seperated with a semi-colon ;

Example: set path=C:\;C:\Windows;c:\windows\system

The last entry gets no semicolon.
