  • Startup is too fast!!!

    I have a few programs that run in my tray on startup. Nothing to intensive just so programs I like to have run. One of them requires a live internet connection which I have with cable. However, the program tries to connect to the internet apparently before my computer has gotten its IP from my router. Thus I get DNS errors and stuff.

    Is there a way to delay programs that run on startup? I only need it to delay 2 or 3 seconds. Any ideas? Would moving it into the startup folder do any good (right now it's just enable in msconfig)?

    BTW google only offers programs that do this... I was hoping to do it with a registry hack or something.

          There's a way to run a batch file (*.bat), and in that batch file, delay for a little bit, and then run a program.

          Sorry I don't remember the commands off of the top of my head, but it's not very hard.

            Use AutoHotkey, www.autohotkey.com , to create an exe that waits for a said amount of time and then runs whatever program you want. Off the top of my head the script would be something of this nature:

            Sleep, 3000 ;wait 3 second
            Run, FULL_PATH_TO_PROGRAM_YOU_WANT_TO_RUN

            Compile the script and place it in your startup folder. This probably isn't what you were looking for, but it is a solution.

              I made a batch file and tossed that in the startup folder

              Code:
              @ECHO OFF
              ECHO Delaying gNotify start up. Please wait.
              SLEEP 1
              CLS
              ECHO Delaying gNotify start up. Please wait..
              SLEEP 1
              CLS
              ECHO Delaying gNotify start up. Please wait...
              SLEEP 1
              CLS
              ECHO Delaying gNotify start up. Please wait.
              SLEEP 1
              CLS
              ECHO Delaying gNotify start up. Please wait...
              START "gNotify" c:\gmail\gnotify.exe
              I wish there was a way to trick the file into thinking that I pressed the enter key.

                The SLEEP command won't work unless you download sleep.exe from microsoft.

                    Nevermind, I see your problem, if you make a shortcut to the gmail.exe file and keep in the same folder as the exe and change your batch file to the below it should make the dos window dissapear

                    Code:
                    @ECHO OFF
                    ECHO Delaying gNotify start up. Please wait.
                    SLEEP 1
                    CLS
                    ECHO Delaying gNotify start up. Please wait..
                    SLEEP 1
                    CLS
                    ECHO Delaying gNotify start up. Please wait...
                    SLEEP 1
                    CLS
                    ECHO Delaying gNotify start up. Please wait.
                    SLEEP 1
                    CLS
                    ECHO Delaying gNotify start up. Please wait...
                    c:\gmail\gnotify.lnk

                      Ask the 9 finger monkeys to help you out with a little VB proggy. Shouldn't be that hard (I can do it but will take me a while) for a pro like him.

                      BTW, but the program in the start up folder will run, but may have problem when returnning from hibernate.

                        Try using this instead of your regular dos box...

                        http://www.commandline.co.uk/cmdow/


                        this option is the one i was talking about:
                        /HID Hides the specified window. Although a hidden window will not be shown on the taskbar, it will still run and may be unhidden later.

                          The DOS window does dissappear. When gNotify does establish a connection it promps me for a username and password, which are stored by windows. I just have to click OK or hit ENTER if its the active window. I was wishing I could make the batch file hit enter

                            Could you hardcode your IP on your computer to what the router will provide for you to make it more instant?
