is it possible in 2K or XP to run a program (in this instance, sol.exe or windows solitaire for example) prior to the user logging in ? not necessarily a script but an exe ? i know under windows 9x/ME this was accomplished by running the program as a service, how is it done under 2000 / XP ? if the same way then how do i get the program installed as a service ? is it the only way ?
