Suspending XP login until login script (.CMD) completes?
Posted on 2007-08-09
I have written a .CMD login script that will run in an XP Pro environment. Basically the script does 2 things. First it copies a file from a server to the local machine (the file happens to be an .EXE). Then it executes the program. Here's the catch, I would like the login process to be susupended until the .EXE (and thus the .CMD) file has completed.
Pretty much, the purpose of the .EXE is for the user to acknowledge an AUP statement and until they do so, they should not be able to move on in the process of logging onto the computer.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
