LogonCommands specifies one or more commands to run the first time a user logs on to the computer.

noteNote
This setting cannot be used to launch applications that require administrative privileges to run.

To run services or commands that can start at the same time, use asynchronous commands. To run commands that need to finish before other commands can start, use FirstLogonCommands commands instead.

 

AsynchronousCommand

Specifies a single command to run the first time a user logs on to the computer.

For a list of the supported Windows® editions and architectures that this component supports, see Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup.
