    selective startup based on login

    how do i go about having certain apps or services run at startup based on the login?

    for example if i login as myself the normal stuff will load, but if i login as a developer then iis, sql server, etc will startup but nothing else...thanks, rob

    I don't hink you can configure the service itself to start depending on who's logging in. But an alternative could be to create some scripts to start/stop those services. Then you would have to set those services to startup manually, and when you log in as developer, create a script with net start IIS, net start SQL etc, and place it in your startup folder. You might also wanna throw in a few net stop service in that script as well...
    And have another similar script which starts/stops services when you log in as a normal user...
