  • Boot to Windows AND Frontend

    Ok guys, I know theres an article on booting directly to your front end but for people like me who still need windows for whatever reason (like finding networks to connect to) I need to have windows open also.

    If you have a Front End that doesnt have an option to boot on startup what you do is go to run and type regedit.

    Once you're in the registry editor go to..

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run

    In that Run folder you right click in an empty spot and click New-> String.

    Once you create a string name it whatever the program is (I dont believe this matters, doesnt have to be exact) Then after you've named it double click and in the empty space where the value is type in (for my example with FrodoPlayer), no quotations necessary, "C:\Program Files\FrodoPlayer\FrodoPlayer.exe"

    Wala, now whenever you boot up windows so will frodoplayer (or whatever you choose). This way I dont have to double click it every time i start windows.

    Hope this helps (and hope im not just repeating this =P)

    Isn't that the same thing as adding frodoplayer.exe to your startup folder? That's how I have it setup. Whenever windows starts up, frodoplayer starts up automatically...

                            well thats just all dandy but it still runs explorer and stuff... havign the frontend load up as shell seems better doesn't it? I'm sure it may run faster although thats only an assumption.
                            ALMOST DONE!
                            I got LCD, mobo, hdd, GPS h/s, most of wiring

                            ALL i need is some stuff and then misc stuff: (offers?)

                              Well the reason I wanted it to load explorer is because I dont have GPRS, I just have wireless and I wanna be able to look at the connections and whatnot
