Is it possible?

When I log on I want the logon script which is a bat file to launch a program.

Does anyone know the code for it to do this?

alternatively you can also use the 'start' command to configure additional options such as process priority etc.
type "start /?" at the command prompt for a list of options.

for examples and a lists of other useful command line utilities check out

Thanks Heaps!

What I have set up now is that I can use Smart Login to execute the main bat logon script (seeing as Smart Login tends to only like BAT scripts) then using the bat script I have got it so that it executes our main logon script which is done using Scriptstart (Because I cant be bothered writing my own script. Seems to be working well now :D

Mr Nerding,

Little late but ...
Depending on the program your running via the batch you may have a dos shell window for the time you have the launched application open/running.
So, you might also want to look into scheduled tasks to. You can set a program to be run at all sorts of times or events.
