  • You can exicute your program in the autoexec.bat file. If it does not exist in the root of C: then create a file called autoexec.bat and execute your program from there.

    When it came down to it I dropped everything and ran.

    Right, and the format of this file is quite simple. You can create it with notepad or the old DOS edit program. Here's a sample that will run "MyDosApp" before Windoze boots.
    [code]
    @Echo Off
    C:WhateverMyDosApp.exe -Parameter
    [/code]
    The "@Echo Off" line turns off echoing so the system won't paste the autoexec batch file to your screen as it executes. Think of this file as a DOS prompt.

  • thank u for suggestions.
    I know about the autoexec.bat technique and I need any other technique which can hide my program (ie. with out placing it in autoexec.bat)
    I tried by placing the application name in System.ini and win.ini, but it doesnot work.

    Thank u again in advance.

    That's easy. Use the registry.

  • Have you tried to run your app like a W98 service (yes, they exist). They are run pretty soon after Windows have started and before login in
