Running a logon script in VPN

Before Windows 7, one could make a VPN connection using the Dial-up option to run logon scripts upon connection to the remote network.
With Windows 7, there seems to be no obvious way to do this.
Would an Expert kindly help?
Thanks

I wrote this script a long time ago, but it might be applicable to your situation.  It uses WMI event monitoring to detect when a VPN connection is made and runs a logon script: http://desktopengineer.com/vpnraslogonhook2

After you hit ctrl-alt-del click on switch user, then a network logon icon should appear on the bottom right, click on that and your VPN connections should become available to log into.
