I couldn't find it in win 8.1 either (even with protected files unhidden). I really doubt it is there. The last time I saw it was on Win 98 and even then it was an overhang from the DOS days - not essential for running Windows. Win 98 was the last system that ran on a separate DOS program - Win XP onwards are "their own DOS".

Maybe you can do something in Startup but keep watching for ideas.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If it's there you can find it using a file search (but I guess there's been no luck with that) and since it's just a text file you can use any text editor to modify it.

But since autoexec.bat loads files on startup on dos-based systems I wonder if it's really what you need for what you want to do.

@saidata: There is no autoexec.bat file in a Windows 8 system. What do you need to do? Run a script on startup? You can do that by running GPEDIT.MSC on a command line and then open Local Computer Policy>Computer Configuration>Windows Settings>Scripts. Then, double-click on the Startup icon in the right-hand window and follow the prompts. Go here for a more in-depth explanation and some links:
