This program is a small program I cooked up, because I was tired of having to restart all of my applications manually after closing them to play a game. I am not the most experienced programmer ever, but this program does seem to do what it was intended to do. There is more info about the program in the readme.
Restart Autorun v1.0 Readme ============================================== This software was written by Tom Bresson Feel free to contact me regarding problems with the software at email@example.com ============================================== Contents of README.txt: 1. Description 2. Requirements 3. Installation 4. Known Issues ============================================== 1. Description This simple Java program will read the values out the the registry keys: "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Run" AND "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Run" It then executes the commands it finds in the values of these keys. Then it reads the contents of the startup folder in the Start Menu and uses the CMD start to run the contents of these (One for Current user and one for all users) folders. ============================================== 2. Requirements You must have WindowsXP or Windows 2K with the provided reg.exe in the SYSTEM32 folder. You must have Java Runtime Env. 1.4.9 or later. ============================================== 3. Installation WindowsXP: Just unzip the "RestartAutorun.exe" anywhere and run. You DON'T NEED reg.exe, as it is included in WindowsXP. Windows 2K: First copy the provided reg.exe to %WINDOWS_FOLDER%\System32. Then extract "RestartAutorun.exe" anywhere and run. reg.exe is needed to read the values out of the Registry keys HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Run and HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Run, and it then parses the output and runs the programs in those keys. Feel free to take a look at the source in the src folder. ============================================== 4.
