Windows 7: Automatically starting a VM VBS Can't create Object

29 Jan 2010   #1

Windows 7
Automating VPC Startup

I have a vbscript that starts a VM. 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?

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 cscript call in 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 from the cmd prompt? How? and What are the switches?

Basically, I neet the VM to always be up.
