I have a situation where I have two screens attached to one windows computer and I have to trigger 2 different applications on 2 different screens on start-up.

What I think that I will need some kind of batch script in startup to do this, but still not sure how this will be achieved. Any code / example / application suggestion will be a great help.

EDIT: The problem is that applications do not remember which screen to go to.

Is the issue that the applications do not remember their window position? –  Ampersand Nov 18 '11 at 18:33
I"d look at autoit. You can start applications and move them to the appropriate monitor based on screen coordinates. It would be a relatively simple script. –  MaQleod Nov 23 '11 at 21:29
