How can I automatically start a program on Amazon's EC2 Windows 2008 web servers?
For example, if I wanted to test the "Digg effect" on a web page of mine, how could I open 100 windows 2008 servers at once, each loading one (or two?) instances of the firefox web browser?
I have placed a sample batch file in the windows startup folder that echos the time it was called, but it is only started when I actually login remotely via the remote desktop protocol.
I don't want to have to login to 100 servers to get my software to run :P What can I do?
I am using this Windows 2008 Datacenter, Amazon-supplied AMI specifically: ami-a2698bcb
