how to run openvpn before user logs in

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
We need to have openVPN   running before user logs in to the computer I have a bat file with a command line which runs user credentials. It will be used for the purpose if user forgets his/her password and a quest program will be running at the desktop (right next to the login box) which will connect users to the helpdesk and send them a temporary password. But in order to connect to the help desk you have to have openVPN   running and that’s why I need to have this bat file running before user logs on

I tried schedule task but doesn’t work at all
