Installation

  • Clone to any directory using the git command: (e.g C:\wsl-autostart)
git clone https://github.com/troytse/wsl-autostart
  • Add a startup item to the registry. run-regedit

  • Add a string item under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run (e.g WSLAutostart) regedit-new-item

  • Set the path to the script (e.g C:\wsl-autostart\start.vbs) regedit-set-path

Usage

  • Modify /etc/sudoers in the WSL to specify the service commands calling on startup without a password. e.g:
%sudo ALL=NOPASSWD: /etc/init.d/cron
%sudo ALL=NOPASSWD: /etc/init.d/ssh
%sudo ALL=NOPASSWD: /etc/init.d/mysql
%sudo ALL=NOPASSWD: /etc/init.d/apache2
  • Modify commands.txt in the wsl-autostart directory to specify the service commands for your need. e.g:
/etc/init.d/cron
/etc/init.d/ssh
/etc/init.d/mysql
/etc/init.d/apache2

Other methods

  • Using gpedit.msc, it is possible to define a program that runs when the computer starts

    Note that the configured program will run as the system user.

  • Using taskschd.msc, it is possible to schedule a task after the startup of the computer.

    You may configure which user will run the program, a delay before a run and a number of retries. the same taskschd.msc program will show a specific log regarding the execution of the task
