Configuring a computer prior to WinLogon

P: n/a
Hey,

I want to change the name and workgroup/domain of a
computer at first boot prior to winlogon. I've written
code that will successfully change the computer's name and
workgroup/domain, but I'm having problems trying to work
out how this may then be implemented prior to a user
logging on. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Shannon.

Hi Shannon,

Did you tried using a window service?

Cheers,

Hey Ignacio,

Thanks for responding. I thought of using a service, but I only want the
service to run once and then never run again. Is this possible?

Thanks,

Shannon.
