WINDOWS START UP LOADING SOFTWARE SEQUENCE

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

I am building a flight simulator and need the computer to open programs automatically and sequentially when the computer starts. I've created a file that opens the programs, but all at once.

I need to open FSX.exe first, wait for it to load then open the SIMKITS software and then the Instructor software.

So, Is there a command that I could use to open FSX, wait 1 minute for it to load, then open the second file and so on?

Thanks.

Your problem can be easily solved by creating a batch file to trigger each program sequentially.  An example will be as follows:

@echo off
program 1.exe
REM delay 60 seconds
timeout /t 60 /nobreak > nul
program 2.exe
REM delay 60 seconds
timeout /t 60 /nobreak > nul
program 3.exe
 
Save it as a batch file and then place it in the start up folder of the user.  This is the simplest way of doing it.
