you somehow have a knack of finding that little niche that I desire and programming an awesome app for it.
Splat is now my #1 go-to startup launcher solution. Where have you been all my life?
I reinstall windows frequently and having to keep up with constantly changing startup entries is a royal PITA. I want to run splat at startup and have it be my pipeline to run all of my startup apps. I don't really need it running in the backgrond either. Once it does its business at startup, it can quit.
. I toyed around with the app and I think it's doing everything I wanted.
Side note: I have UAC completely turned off (Enable LUA=0) so admin rights not an issue.
1. Create right menu context entry > "Duplicate" function (For entries, not profiles)
2. Allow us to manually choose display name or have another column for NAME | TARGET | Arguments.
3. It's not the worse thing in the world but I would remove the options tab - remove the profiles tab and just create a text label called "Profiles". Then I would put "options" or "preferences" under menu, unless there's some design considered I haven't thought of. PIC of area I'm saying to remove: http://i.imgur.com/hAXRsa1.png
4. PLEASE allow us to customize the columns. I don't need working directory or notes...
5. Give us the ability to keep entries in the list, but "disable" them. Disabling them puts a red X over their name or dims their entry dramatically.
Bugs (#2-critical bug)
1. EDIT: I think this may a bug, but I keep having to resize the columns (specifically working directory) but closing the app and reopening splat doesn't remember it.
I know the role of profile shortcuts (for startup) but i was messing around and....
I have also discovered a infinite loop crash in splat. Create a new entry for splat with following:http://i.imgur.com/RHLCr0p.png
Launch this profile: startup
Put it at the top of the list.
Now, right click / run selected entries. Infinite loop, crash. Proof: http://i.imgur.com/a46UhPz.png
EDIT: removed report about breevyportable.exe problem since it's not splat's fault. I created a workaround in the profile to kill breevy.exe before running breevyportable.exe again
