Hi all,

I have an app I installed that needs a reboot and then I would like to call it at the first reboot.

When I use HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce to pop the pathname to my app it comes up OK but it comes up before explore.exe.

I need explorer runnning for so the user can drag some folders over to the app GUI.

Any way to make runonce (or some similar method) happen AFTER explorer.exe is running?
I even tried putting %windir\explorer.exe in runonce before the app but it still did not come up
