I have a python script that maps a network drive. The problem? It will not start on boot on the Windows XP machines. It's a shortcut placed in the All Users> Startup folder. The shortcut just points to a native .pyw script. Is there something special with Python and Windows as far as the startup folder is concerned? Here is what I have tried.
- Startup Folder "All Users"
- Starup Folder "Individual User"
- Registry settings
- Scheduled Tasks
Nothing has worked, all I can think of is converting it to an .exe, but that's not an option considering the script changes constantly and I would have to compile it way to many times. Any advice would be appreciated.
