Can PowerDesigner run a program automatically on launch?

We have standard scripts and use the Customize Commands to create menus of scripts. I need to have PD automatically check for updates. I have written a program that does the work, including copying the updated scripts to the local HD, and adding new scripts to the registry. However, I have to have the users manually run the script. Is there any way to make this happen when PD starts?

    AFAIK, there are two options:

    1. Running PD with -x parameter, which will allow you to run any script from the very beginning, but this way is better for automated & scheduled running of PowerDesigner.
    2. You can use OnModelOpen event handler, which will trigger your script automatically after a model with extension containing this handler is opened.
