Run startup scripts visible

Displays the instructions in startup scripts as they run.

Startup scripts are batch files of instructions that run before the user is invited to log on. By default, the system does not display the instructions in the startup script.

If you enable this setting, the system displays each instruction in the startup script as it runs. The instructions appear in a command window. This setting is designed for advanced users.

If you disable this setting or do not configure it, the instructions are suppressed.

Note: Starting with Windows Vista operating system, scripts that are configured to run asynchronously are no longer visible on startup, whether this setting is enabled or not.

Supported on: At least Windows 2000
