running a batch files at startup before login

I need to have a batch file (.bat or .cmd) run before I login to the
server...is that possible? my problem is that I need to have several
groupwise pos office files load on boot up and not as a service. they need to
be loaded @bootup. I have the .bat file in "startup" but it only runs when I
login. is there a way that it can run when the system starts up and necessary
when logging in?

Re: running a batch files at startup before login

Use the Group policy editor.
%systemroot%\system32\gpedit.msc

User Config\Windows Settings\Scripts\Logon/Logoff
Computer Config\Windows Settings\Scripts\Startup/Shutdown

An obvious alternative to using Group Policy is to use
tha Task Scheduler. It lets you run tasks at boot time.
