win.com
Last modified: Friday, November 09, 2001 

Win.com is the executable file responsible for Windows start-up. It runs after the autoexec.bat file is processed, and it accesses the VMM32.vxd file.

In a Windows 3.x environment, the win.com file is executed by typing "win" in the DOS prompt. In version 9x OSs, win.com runs automatically.
