How to run a batch file at shutdown on XP HOME?
Posted on 2004-11-18
I would like to run a script/batch file when I choose Start>Shutdown.
I have looked at programs like Karen's Show Stopper, but they only run a script/batch before THEY shutdown the computer.
I have heard about programs like LastChance, but I would like a method that does not have yet another process running to achieve it.
I've looked at Group Policy, but it is not a part of XP Home. I tried to enter the registry entries for GP manually, but nothing happened on shutdown. The GP core is probably not even in XP Home.
Scheduled Tasks only has an option for logon / startup.
Is there any other method [other than upgrading to XP Pro :) ] ?
