Run a bat-file on system shutdown
« on: August 21, 2009, 06:19:49 PM »
I'm looking for a application that can run a bat-file when Windows Vista is going to shutdown/restart.

Does a application like this exist or would anyone like to create it?  :-*

This program will run a program before shutting down, but it's initiating the shutdown, not just detecting it.

Cotton please give more info.  Can this be a program or batch file that runs your command, then shuts down?  Or does it have to detect shutdown and run your program?

If the former, just make a .cmd file with 2 commands
YourCommand.exe
shutdown /t 60

to shutdown one minute after the first command completes.
To run the first command without waiting(something quick) use the Start command as in

start yourapp.exe
shutdown yadda yadda

you can try either Xecutor (free for non-commercial use) or LastChance (freeware).

Looks like DShutdown also has this option:

I've been using DTaskManager and it seems well done so I might as well give DShutdown a try.

Just use Group Policy

Example here

Not all versions of Windows have Group Policy Editor.  On my Windows7 eval it's Ultimate so I can keep Windows Media Player and IE from starting just using Group Policy.  On my Vista64 Home Premium I don't have it, so I have to employ a process monitor that kills them as soon as they rear their ugly heads.

here. it will run any program just edit the settings.ini file.

to make the program run on startup, place a shortcut
(not a copy of the program) to your startup folder.

program attached!
