I have a vbscript that starts a Virtual PC Machine - the script runs perfect when executed manually or from the command line. I've placed it in the all users startup, but when I reboot it does not run until I log in. Is this the expected behavior? How can I have it start when Windows starts up.. for example, after a powerfail?
Also, I've tried running the vbscript under a windows service using srvany.exe, but it just won't run. I even tried calling the vbscript from a cmd file with a cscript call through the service, again, no luck. Is it possible to run a vbscript from a windows service?
Finally, is it possible to run a VM using vpc.exe (Windows Virtual PC) from the cmd prompt? How? and What are the switches for vpc.exe?
Basically, I need the VM to always be up.
Thanks for any help or information.
