Autostarting a VirtualBox VM headless in Windows

Do you have a VM that you want to start when your Windows box boots? Easy...


Add a .bat file  to your Startup programs at
C:\Users\MYUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup


Containing the following call:
"C:\Program Files\HSTART\hstart64.exe" /NOCONSOLE /SILENT "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox\vboxheadless.exe --startvm MYVM"


If that VM has Secure Global Desktop and it has a published app that points to your PC, well... ;)
