I have to manually run sdkvars.bat to use C# compiler each time I reboot MS Dos under Windows 2000.  How to set the system environment variables or something else to make sdkvars.bat to run automatically when I reboot my computer or MS DOS?
Thanks for any help in advance.

Just add the batch file in the startup folder.. or do you need to start it before you login?

Simply enter them to the persistent environment variables.
Right-click "My Computer", Properties, Advanced tab, button "Environment variables". Add the variables defined in the batch file to your profile (or the machine profile, if other users need those as well).

Thanks, oBdA

I have another batch file  and I have to run it manually too, its content is not as simple as sdkvar, do you know how to automatically run it whenever I reboot system?

By adding a shortcut to the batch file in the startup folder in your start menu?
Or what does that batch do?

Thanks for your response.
I added the shortcut to the batch file in C:\Documents and Settings\myloginname\Start Menu\mybatch.bat, but it doesn't run when I reboot my pc. This batch file allows me to access my company's network drives, its content is like this:

net use /delete * /y

:Transactiondata
ifmember transactiondata
if not errorlevel 1 goto processing
net use m: \\mycompany\days

:processing
ifmember processing
if not errorlevel 1 goto sales
net use n: \\myapp1\eps
net use O: \\zontalk\ztalk
net use R: \\mycompany\processing

:sales
ifmember sales
if not errorlevel 1 goto services
net use S: \\mycompany\sales
.....

Any idea? Did I put the shortcut in wrong place?

Yes; that shortcut needs to go into the folder named "startup" (assuming you're using an English version); Start Menu\Programs\Startup
