You can write your own Scriptfile or add it to an existing.

Edit\Attachments\New folder "(Default)Name will be named Folder"
Add File.bat to Folder

*** NEXT 3 LINES JUST EXTRACT TO SYS32 AND MAKE SHORTCUT, THEY DON'T AUTOMATICALLY RUN IT ***
*** IMPORTANT TO EXTRACT TO SYS32 SO WINDOWS CAN FIND IT, ELSE FOLLOWING LINES YOU WILL ***
*** HAVE TO POINT WINDOWS TO WHERE IT ACTUALLY IS IF NOT NOT IN SYS32 ***
[process]
ExtractAllFiles,"%ScriptFile%","Folder","%Target_Sys%"
Add_Shortcut,Desktop,,"#$pSystemRoot#$p\system32\File.bat","File.bat"


*** NEXT EXAMPLES LOAD FILE.BAT ON STARTUP, JUST USE ONE OF THEM AS APPROPRIATE ***
*** DEPENDING ON WHAT FILE.BAT DOES, YOU MAY WANT TO VARY WHEN IT LOADS AT BOOT TIME ***
*** (I.E) DRIVERS YOU MAY WANT TO LOAD EARLY, OTHER TASKS MAYBE NOT SO EARLY ***

*** RUNNING FROM WINPESHL.INI ANYTHING HERE LOADS VERY EARLY IN BOOT ***
TXTAddLine,%target_sys%\winpeshl.ini,"File.bat",APPEND


*** RUNNING FROM RUNONCE ***
Hive_Load,HKCU
Reg_add,0x1,%reg%\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce,File.bat,"hiderun File.bat"
Hive_UnLoad,HKCU

*** RUNNING FROM START.CMD ***
If,NOT,EXISTFILE,%TargetDir%\Windows\system32\start.cmd,FileCreateBlank,%TargetDir%\Windows\system32\start.cmd
TXTAddLine,%TargetDir%\Windows\system32\start.cmd,start#$s/min#$sFile.bat,PREPEND

*** RUNNING FROM AUTORUN.CMD ***
TXTAddLine,%TargetDir%\windows\system32\autorun.cmd,"File.bat",Append

Add_Shortcut,AutoRun,,"#$pSystemRoot#$p\system32\File.bat","File.bat"

Let me start by saying that i am new to this. Using the most wonderful WIN7PE_SE project. I am trying to execute a file at boot up. This app requires user input.


The location of the file will be x:\menu The file name is menu.exe

I edited the 9-autorun.script located in the build folder.
After the [interface] section, based on the instructions above; running it from start.cmd i think that the correct syntex is:

If,NOT,EXISTFILE,%TargetDir%\Windows\system32\start.cmd,FileCreateBlank,%TargetDir%\Windows\system32\start.cmd
TXTAddLine,%TargetDir%\Windows\system32\start.cmd,start#$s/min#$sx:\menu\menu.exe,PREPEND
ExtractFile,%ScriptFile%,files,x:\menu\menu.exe,%TargetDir%\Windows\system32\



That didnt seem to work so i removed those commands

I tried to add adding the following command to the same script:

TXTAddLine,"%TargetDir%\windows\system32\autorun.cmd","x:\menu\menu.exe","Append"

After the "echo off","Append" line in the [interface] section.

None of those seem to work. I dont see any errors messages. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

ExtractFile,%ScriptFile%,files,x:\menu\menu.exe,%TargetDir%\Windows\system32\

You have a problem with your path x:\menu\menu.exe and extract in %TargetDir%\Windows\system32\
You can not have x:\Menu, X is the drive where boot.wim is mounted


to have it in Y:\menu\menu.exe
If,Not,EXISTDIR,%TargetDir%\Menu,DirMake,%TargetDir%\Menu
ExtractFile,%ScriptFile%,files,menu.exe,%TargetDir%\Menu

to have menu.exe in X:\windows\sytem32
ExtractFile,%ScriptFile%,files,menu.exe,%target_sys%

Look at the examples of RoyM, forget maybe start.cmd and winpeshl.ini at first step

Before shell (explorer, ...)
AddAutoRun

After shell
autorun.cmd
or
RunOnce

:cheers:

Hi, everybody!

I am new to this, too, and I'm trying to build a WIN7PE image where I want to autorun a customized portable Firefox in kiosk-mode (using the firefox extension r-kiosk) and automatically loading a certain webpage AFTER the "PENetwork" script finished. Unfortunately, Firefox always opens up while PENetwork is still running, thus not being able to load the webpage lacking a network connection. Here is what I do within the Firefox-script (based upon the very useful hints in this thread as well as the winbuilder documentation):


...

ExtractAllFiles,"%ScriptFile%","FolderFF","%Target_Sys%"

AddPostConfig,"FirefoxPortable.bat",x:windowssystem32FirefoxPortable.bat,,2


In the batch-script I am trying to achieve a delay by running


@ping -n 60 localhost> nul


prior to calling the firefox executable, but this doesn't seem to work either (probably also due to the lacking network connection at that time).

Long story short, how would I achieve that Firefox open up after the network connection has been established?

Thx a lot in advance!

Kind regards,
Chris

Hi ChrisBA!

Welcome in our community!

PENetwork offers the feature to start one or more processes after the network is up.

In the PENetwork GUI, click "Start Editor" and define your firefox in the "CMDs after startup" tab.

That on the next Holger's Penetwork version ;).
On the current version, there is a problem with "CMDs after startup"

*
You idea to wait 60 seconds is good try with ping 127.0.0.1 -n 60
or with a small autoit program and wait 1mn (loop) until process PENetwork finish

:cheers:

Nice to see that not only in my scripts the user should not believe everything he sees! ;)

BTW: There are never problems, there are only issues! :smart:

How about running PENetwork and Firefox from a batchfile?

This way, firefox would not be started until PENetwork finishes, but also no pointless waiting for a timeout.

FYI, There also exists timeout.exe, in my batches, 5 seconds seems to be just right
for PeNetwork to finish completely, "Your Mileage May Vary", Depending upon your network setup.

Another new command in Vista/7 is "timeout".
Use the "timeout" command to make a Vista/7 batch file wait.
It will cause the command processor to wait for a specified number of seconds or until a key is pressed.

The format is: timeout /T n
where n is the number of seconds to wait.
To make the command ignore any key presses, the switch /nobreak can be added:
timeout /T n /nobreak
Because the command gives output listing the time remaining,
it may be necessary to use a redirect to nul.
timeout /T n > nul

Example: StartFirefoxPortable.cmd
start /wait penetwork.exe
timeout 5
call FirefoxPortable.bat

Somewhat insignifigant, FirefoxPortable should be .cmd
"However, if it works, Don't Fix it".

Good :), all that are workarounds.

I see that many of us wait for the next version of Holger's Penetwork, which would correct the "CMDs after startup" option and many other things :thumbsup:. Notice to all futures testers ;)
