Automatically run a DOS program when closing SysManager 100/200LX

Automatically run a DOS program when closing SysManager 100/200LX

Here's a way to modify the AUTOEXEC.BAT file to accomplish the above. In this example, the DOS program we want to run is DOSMENU , a program that displays a menu of programs you can run from the DOS prompt. You could replace DOSMENU in the instructions below with the name of any DOS program. (Remember, the DOS program must be in the root directory of the C drive, or in a directory that is mentioned in a PATH statement in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file.)

Open your AUTOEXEC.BAT file in Memo and move to the last command line of the file (100 in the 100LX, or 200 in the 200LX). Replace this line with the following four lines (Use 200 instead of 100 above if you have an HP 200LX):

: Loop



goto Loop

Press (F10) to save the file, and (CTRL)-(ALT)-(DEL) to reboot the system. The command line 100 starts System Manager. Whenever you terminate SysMgr by pressing (&...) (MENU) Applications Terminate All, the next line of the AUTOEXEC.BAT file is executed and DOSMENU is started. When you quit DOSMENU, the last line of the AUTOEXEC.BAT file is executed, taking you back to Loop and then executing 100, which starts System Manager again.
