  • opening front end automatically at startup

    Ok, first of all, i'm sorry for posting this as i know there's a post on here somewhere detailing how to do it because i remember reading it. BUT, i have searched, and have not found, so, a simple question, what is the best way to go about having a front end (i'm using road runner) open up on system startup as soon as i'm logged in?

    Once i've got an answer to this or a link to the thread i'm thinking of then mods please feel free to delete this post if it's considered duplication. Thanks in advance, Bryce.

        shame people have to be scared of being told off my the mods!

        anyway, there is another way to do it through the registry. Windows automatically loads the explorer shell, which takes time. You can get it to load the front end instead, which means it'll boot quicker, but you won't have the explorer shell if the front end crashes. So the better approaches I've seen is to get windows to load the front end first, and then the front end loads the explorer shell (explorer.exe). This way you get the best of both worlds.
