Minimized Startup not working
« on: November 08, 2005, 05:23:09 AM »
I don't know if it's just my system or what.. but Clipboard Help & Spell will not start up minimized on my system, even when I set it to do just that from the program's options. What's up?

What's Up??  A new update is needed!  Fortunately mouser will be working on CHS in the next month.  Just wait a bit and hopefully the problem will be corrected!

I'm sure. He mentioned he's hard at work at some of his programs. I'm sure it will be fixed soon. I just thought I'd point it out ;)

Actually... this might be a good time to enter this request into the bug/feature tracker.  I'll be honest I don't quite know how to use it, but that's the best way to get mouser's attention I believe.

I don't have a clue how to use it either, nor would I know where to find it. I'm pretty sure that one's submitted already. It's a very simple bug, and somebody MUST have submitted it already. Let's wait for mouser to see this thread :D

strange -
does it fail to start minimized even when you set it to and run it manually (not at windows start up)?

it starts up minimized fine here, i've never had a problem with that.

chs is going to finally get updated this month and we'll see if we can't get the rough edged off it - i do hope users of it can enter some bugs into the bug tracker, it does make life a lot easier for me in terms of finding and resolving issues.

Could you give a quick way to enter the CHS realm of the bugtracker mouser?

that bug tracker intereface is a bit complicated, i'll try to simplify it.
but for now, just click on "Track Bugs" button and click the link at top that says "Report Issue"
then it will ask you what project, and select "clipboard help and spell" from drop down.

Moerl,

Are you using "Startup Delayer" ?

I had this problem with a number of apps until I tracked the problem down. If you have set up Startup Delayer (or similar) to manage the startup process you will probably have apps starting from there. the trouble is a number of apps when they start see the 'Start with Windows" option set and the regenerate the entry in the normal windows registry. This means the program gets started twice, and some programs respond to that by opening a window. Also I have found that Startup Delayer doesn't always transfer command line options (which usually force the minimized to tray option).

Just a thought.

carol i think you should pursue a second career as a detective - even if this isn't the cause in this case, it's great detective work and seems like it could definitely be an issue for people to be aware of - i'm going to remember this post in case similar issues come up for people.

Sorry I haven't replied in so long.. I've been doing a lot of restructuring on my system lately.. imaging, restoring an older image of windows and installing everything from scratch.. and so on. I don't have Clipboard Help + Spell installed ATM.

I'll get back to this thread if I experience the bug again :)
