I recently knew about nlite which lets you have an unattended installation. I want to know if it is possible to run an executable automatically upon installation of windows Xp.

Thanks!

Hi Bob -
The .exe you mention, refers to what program in particular ??
Many .exe's are run with the install of XP (from a Genuine XP CD install), so you need to be a bit more specific -

Thank You -

As Clamwin is an Antivirus program, first you would need to find if there is an Antivirus included on the XP CD -

Microsoft will often partner with Norton or McAfee to include one of these on a Genuine Installation XP CD -

Never mind, I found it out. You need to use the addon maker.
