Dear experts,

I made an application in Visual Basic and Sqlserver, and  I want to run the executable file in windows 2000 or windows 2000 server each time the server is turned on even if it not logged on (When computer starts) .
It is possible?
And if it not with visual basic, is with vb.net?

Note: I'm using trusted connection throw sqlserver, is that a problem?

Thanks in advance
