You may need to write a batch file or script.

You could use a bat file, PowerShell or VB script.

I'll ask Brink to ask one of SevenForums' script experts to visit this thread.

Basically, use a text editor like Notepad and put the commands separated by "ping" command to get a delay between each launch. The number after the "-n" is the approximate seconds delay. For example:

MyLauncher.cmd with a 5 second delay between each launch might contain these lines

notepad.exe MyLauncher.cmd
ping -n 5 127.0.0.1 >nul
iexplore.exe www.sevenforums.com
ping -n 5 127.0.0.1 >nul
(some other program yadda yadda)


you get the idea. Make sure each command has the complete path to the exe with all params needed.
You can find more elaborate graphics based delay lauch tools on freeware sites. But this should work for simple needs.

You should make a list of all the programs and services that are involved and a description of exactly what you want to happen.

Anytime i launch a game, i want CPU Throttle to launch. And when i close that game, i want it to close too! Not sure to understand what MilesAhead offered, i thought i'll have a to make a new shortcut for each game so it'll launch CPU Throttle at same time. But no, that's not gonna do it. Really need a script that's always running and monitoring, automatically launched at boot.
