While I prefer the autorun approach because it has fewer dependencies on 
the Windows side and thus allows me to test in as clean a Windows as 
desired, your approach could be pretty useful for testing on a real 
Windows machine. Maybe if you post your script with some instructions it 
will inspire some people to set up automated testing on their real 
Windows machines. I'm sure it would make the Direct3D guys happy (if the 
testers have Nvidia ;-) ).
