    Either what/how to make a similar script or where to find information about it?

    I am at a loss as to how to get this working....
    Here is the script---

    Dim speaks, speech
    speaks="Welcome to your Computer YOUR NAME HERE. I am ready to do anything you want."
    Set speech=CreateObject("sapi.spvoice")
    speech.Speak speaks

    Welcome.vbs

    You can edit it to suit.
    Just put it in your Startup folder & restart the computer.
    It will play after all your icons appear.

    EDIT... Maybe you could put the .exe in a batch file in Startup.

    Will have to figure out how to write a batch file to get Dropbox to start automatically.
    I am puzzled. I got it going no worries on Win7, but it seems that Win8 is not happy and i cannot get it to work....
    Puzzled and frustrated.
    Appreciate your help as I am forcably learning more about Win8 thru this experience

    Give me the exact name of the exe file & I'll write the batch file for you.
