Running a TSR prior to login

Hi All, I have a small utility (it's for my video card) I'd like to run
as soon as Win2K boots, before users log in.  Is that possible?

Thank you,
Mike Woods

Hi Mike - Why not start it up as a service.  See here, the NT section
(mostly applies, w/appropriate changes, to Win2k and has a direct
download link at the bottom for the two programs you'll need +
instructions in case you don't have the Resource Kit):

You can use Autoexnt.exe to run it before everyone logs
on. It can be found in the Windows NT Resource Kit.

Thanks Jim & Max.  I get an Error 1053 trying to add it as a
service, no matter what I do.  As for Autoexnt.exe, I don't have
the Resource Kit and the utility isn't a free download.

Thanks Max, is that your real address?  I sent an email and
it didn't bounce, so hopefully it is.

Man, I give up.  Autoexnt doesn't run the utility.  The service starts,
I see a cursor flash for a split second, and then nothing.  The utility
never runs.  I know autoexnt.bat is good because the utility runs fine
when the batch file is started manually, after logging in.

Other ideas appreciated.

1. configure left-hand mouse prior to login

Hi all,

Is there any way for me to configure my mouse to be a left-handed mouse
prior to login as a specific user so that I do not have to use the mouse
as a right-handed mouse while logging in and then after I log in as the
left-handed mouse I prefer to use?  I use two accounts on the same
computer, which is on my desk and used only by me, and I'm getting
exasperated as I log off as one user and log on as the other and have to
keep switching mouse-button functionality.

TIA for any answers.

Janet
