Which OS, which DE (if Linux), which display manager (if Linux and you want autologin)? In Windows there's the menu section "startup" (or similar) and XFCE has a setting dialogue for starting programs on login. Most display managers have a setting to log a user in automatically.

The mention of the Windows-only autoexec and the fact that you're posting form Windows means there's no "of course" about it. Which distribution and desktop environment?
It's likely that you just have to add something like the command petelq shows to the "startup applications" but exactly how that is done depends upon which desktop environment you are using. Also, you may want to set the sessions manager up to auto login for a specific user but, again, how this is done depends on which sessions manager you are using.

I think that was a typo and was supposed to be "impress" -- the name of the program you wish to run.

Likely thinking old, as in staroffice? OpenOffice the executable is "ooimpress", so OP if you have OpenOffice:

Code:

ooimpress --show filename

Could be, I'd not checked because the OP doesn't seem to want any more help but I just checked now and I'm on Libre Office so the executable is loimpress. Possibly it requires some switch or other to make it full screen and the like also.

The impress command is 'simpress' or 'libreofficex.x --impress' if you download libreoffice from the libreoffice website.
