Does anyone know any temporary startup manager?
« on: July 13, 2008, 11:04:34 PM »
I am looking for a startup manager that can start items only once(one session) then deletes them. I know I can make batch files, use startup applications etc but that is not the path I want to take. I need more convenient solution so that I do not forget to disable-delete any temporary startup application-item.

Someone who knows AHK can probably do this better, but here's a start...

FileSelectFile, programname

Gui, Add, Text, x22 y22 w80 h20 , Program to run:
Gui, Add, Text, x112 y22 w320 h20 , %programname%
Gui, Add, Text, x22 y62 w190 h20 , Command line parameters:
Gui, Add, Edit, x22 y82 w410 h20 vCommandlp,
Gui, Add, Button, x22 y122 w100 h20 , OK
Gui, Add, Button, x142 y122 w90 h20 , Cancel
; Generated using SmartGUI Creator 4.0
Gui, Show, h166 w440, RunOnce Control
Return

ButtonOK:
Gui, submit
RegWrite, REG_SZ, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\RunOnce, %programname%, %programname% %commandlp%

ButtonCancel:
GuiClose:
ExitApp


This new version will allow you to add command line parameters if you want after selecting the program to run.

I made some changes to the script to allow you to enter command line parameters if needed.  The exe file attached is updated as well.

Thanks for the update. It might work, because I just checked out runonce key via autoruns. The stuff I have added via your app is listed there. Thanks again

Btw, it's easy to change the script to add a program that is specific to your user account.

Just change the line:
RegWrite, REG_SZ, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\RunOnce, %programname%, %programname% %commandlp%

to
RegWrite, REG_SZ, HKEY_CURRENT_USER, SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\RunOnce, %programname%, %programname% %commandlp%
