I'm trying to start an app interactively before login to the domain on a Windows XP box... anyone?

I tried it as a service but that was a no go...

try setting it as a service and make sure it can interact with the desktop. (there's a check box on the properties for the service)

Yeah it was...

I got it to work but did it differently.

HKEY_USERS.DefaultControl PanelDesktop

Edit String SCRNSAVE.EXE to wherever the program you want to run is

Edit String ScreenSaveActive to 1

Edit String ScreenSaverIsSecure to 0

Edit String ScreenSaveTimeOut to whatever seconds you want to wait, I put 20 to allow time to login but also let me run the program...

Works great... I'm adding this to my sysprep and I have a program that auto installs hardware.

First, if you have a software program to auto install hardware plz share.

Second, What exactly are you running previous to login?

Its a program called hardware, go figure, from the msfn.org forums. http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=70209

Thats the only program i'm going to run before login to the domain after reimaging with ghost. I had it setup with a guirunounce but found that sometimes windows tried to install hardware before the program could.

Forgive me if i'm brief I'm on my PDA...
