I've a program say abc.exe , and want to auto start to run this program when win8pe boot up.


Something I found very strange. When I mount C:\Win8PE_SE_2013-10-03\ISO\WIM\sources\boot.wim to C:\mount , I found some files in C:\mount\windows\system32 , they are :

     winpeshl.ini , startnet.cmd , start.cmd

I know I can place the abc.exe in one of them and can be autorun. But when I boot up the win8pe , all the above 3 files are disappear.


In the mounted C:\mount\windows\system32 , the 3 files do exist. How come when boot win8pe , they disappear ?


So I can't find a way to place the abc.exe to autorun.


Please help

Why not just make a simple script for the abc.exe and add autostart to it?

You may also consider the AddAutoRun command documented here if you require more control about how/when your program is started.

Another way is to make sure that Autorun is ticked in the Build section of WinBuilder.

Then add the following lines to the application script you want to run (change Ghost\Ghost64.exe to your application and application folder):

TXTAddLine,"%target_sys%\autorun.cmd","start %PE_Programs%\Ghost\Ghost64.exe","Append"
