Windows 2008:Question about autostart with BAT file.

Hi experts!

I need to write BAT file which to be executed on Windows 2008 Server when it start. Here you my code

set PF=%ProgramFiles(x86)%
start "" /wait Sleep.exe 3
cd "%PF%\Microsoft Virtual PC\"
"%PF%\Microsoft Virtual PC\Virtual PC.exe" -pc "Test Sofia" -launch  -minimize –singlepc
REM Next Command is not executed
"%PF%\Microsoft Virtual PC\Virtual PC.exe" -pc "Test Sofia" -launch  -minimize –singlepc

The problem is that last row (start of second virtual machine) is not executed. I guest the problem is that first virtual machine do not return execution in BAT file and I’m afraid there no such options in MS Virtual PC. So I should use some options in BAT file which to start this problem and to not wait for it to return execution. Do I have such option ?

P.S: And at all, what is recommended way for Windows 2008 server to start programs after user log on system? Does have new technology better than BAT files?

Create 2 seperate batch files. One will contain the launch command for server 1, the other for the second server. Create a third batch file with a call command that runs the 2 batch file or you can just run both bat files at startup.
