Running Batch files at Startup/Shutdown (Windows 2000)



You can run a batch file at either Startup or shutdown (or Logon/Logoff) from the Local Security Policy

Click Start >Run > type "gpedit.msc" {enter}

Navigate to the following location


Local Computer Policy >Computer Configuration >Windows Settings >Scripts

OR

Local Computer Policy >User Configuration >Windows Settings >Scripts

In both locations you will see a set of scripts in the USER settings you set scripts for LOGON and LOGOFF. In the COMPUTER settings you will see scripts for STARTUP and SHUTDOWN


Add your .bat file to the appropriate script.
