  • Does Centrafuse self load on windows startup?

    I haven't gotten to install or test centrafuse yet.

    I'm getting the xle version and want to know do how do I get centrafuse to start up automatically when xp starts up? I already got rid of the windows starting screen. Does centrafuse autoload on default? or do I need to make some windows changes?

    You can set auto startup in settings.

      you can set the run as shell in Centrafuse if you want to replace the entire system shell, or simply just move the shortcut into the Startup folder...

            Thanks for the answer.

            But If I test this option, could I return back if it's not appropriate to me without damaging Windows?

              yes, you should be able to go right back into settings, set run as shell to OFF, then reboot and Explorer will load back up...

                    I cant get centrafuse running as a shell in win 7, used to work on xp fine, must be a win 7 thing, i have the short cut in start up folder and that boots into centrafuse pretty quick

                      True i'm sure it's a issue about compatibility with Windows 7...

                      I had to set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\shell to explorer.exe to fix it...

                        for sure that key is not ment to be touched by a user program
                        UAC will protect that key
                        UAC off might alllow it...
                        -Thanks

                          If you run CF as an Admin (Right-click and "Run as Administrator") and set the "Run as System Shell" to "On" it should work for you. It did for me, anyway...
