Hello All,  I am wondering if there is any way to make a VBS logon script run several exe files once the user has completely logged in.. I tried to include the exe files in the script, but they did not work, I suspect because they need to run while the user is logged in.  Is there any way to do this?

In case you need it to wait first you could do this. Note time for WScript.Sleep is in milliseconds.

WScript.Sleep 5000
 
Name = "C:\Windows\notepad.exe"
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Return = objShell.Run(Name, 1, true)

Open in new window
