    Probably the easiest way is to copy the shortcut into your startup folder on the start menu ... this will make it autorun when windows starts .... also .... take a look at RoadRunner, a MediaCar clone, very actively being developed and much more functionality than MediaCar and getting better every day.

    Exactly as Uk said. I have done this with Road Runner, which is much nicer and more current than MediaCar, but is the same layout as Mediacar.

    Thanks,

    Drag the MediaCar icon (without letting go) to Start, then over programs then into the startup 'tree', once the lin appears in the startup folder let go of the mouse, the shortcut will appear in the startup folder

    Or

    in explorer browse to c:\documents and settings\all users\programs\startup

    right mouse click, choose new shortcut
    now find mediacar in c:\program files\mediacar\mediacar.exe

    follow the dialog box, the system will load mediacar from startup doing it either way.

    To answer your question, yes: any bug-free mediacar skin will work. There's actually a more up-to-date alpine amber skin for RR.. but you won't find anything about it in the Mediacar forums..
