This post is related to Running Python Script when opening MXD?

I would like a python script to run every time a .mxd is opened. However, the link above uses VBA to do it, which ESRI suggests migrating away from....


I am looking for way to do it with python.



Stick with VBA in 10.0 as it's the only way to (easily) do it, 10.1 has Python Add-Ins which will let you run Python when you open a document (newDocument, openDocument events).
