(None)

Description

Contains commands that run each time you start Command Processor (Cmd.exe).

Change Method

You can change the value of this entry by using Command Processor (Cmd.exe) and typing CMD /D, but only for the duration of that instance of Cmd.exe. For all other changes, you must edit the registry directly.

Activation Method

To make changes to this entry effective, you must restart Cmd.exe.

Notes

  • AutoRun can appear in HKLM and HKCU. If both appear in the registry, the value of the entry in HKLM executes first, then the value in HKCU executes.

  • The command-line parameters take precedence over the registry settings.

Tip

  • For more information about the AutoRun feature, at the command prompt, type CMD /?.
