    Using Access Control as a shell in XP

    Hi all,

    I've got Access Control working as a shell and thought I would share with you all. Before I go on please heed this warning,

    Step 1
    To get this work open task manager>File>NewTask
    then type regedit and hit enter, or start>run then regedit and hit enter. Once regedit is open go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Microsoft>Windows NT>CurrentVersion>Winlogon then look for the key shell in the right hand pane. Double click on shell and change the value data: path to match where Access Control is, in my case this would be "C:\Program File\AccessControl\AccessControl.exe" N.B. make sure you have the quotations around the path or it won't work!

    Step 2
    Create a new file using notepad and put in it any programs you would like to run at start up, again in my case this is;
    start "BtTray" "C:\Program Files\WIDCOMM\Bluetooth Software\BTTray.exe"

    start "PowerStrip" "C:\Program Files\PowerStrip\pstrip.exe"

    start "RoadRunner" "C:\Program Files\Road Runner\rr.exe"

    start "Mouse" "C:\Program Files\3DMouse\3DMOUSE.EXE"

    start "DirSync" "C:\Program Files\DirSync\DirSync.exe" /Background

    start "ATI" "C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI Control Panel\atiptaxx.exe"

    start "Keyboard" "C:\Program Files\MediaKey\MEDIAKEY.EXE"

    start "PowerDVD" "C:\Program Files\CyberLink\PowerDVD\PDVDServ.exe"

    start "Konfabulator" "C:\Program Files\Pixoria\Konfabulator\Konfabulator.exe"

    save this file as start.bat and remember where you saved it (I put it in c:\WINDOWS)

    Step 3.
    Go to your accesscontrol folder and open accesscontrol.ini using notepad and change App to match wherever you put the start.bat file and the Path to the folder where the start.bat file is, in my case the settings.ini file looks like this;

    Hope this makes sense and is of use to someone. Any comments or questions are welcome,
