Hi

I want to turn of "start with Windows". I do this from the options menu, but it always turn itself on!

How does one turn it off?

What is the line in the ini file?

Thanks

Chris

hi chris, are you using the latest version 1.05.12?
this was an issue in older versions but i thought it was fixed in the recent builds.

essentially f&r tries to be clever and auto-detect the "start with windows" option by looking in the start menu -> startup directory, and setting and removing the entry there.

so a failure to disable means that its not successful in removing that entry.
to manually remove, just click on your start menu, go to "Programs' -> "Startup" and delete the entry for "Find&Run Robot"

I have been having a weird bug lately.  After a number of startups, FindRun seems to replace the tray startup with the non tray startup.  I have no idea why this is happening and I have no way to reproduce the error!  It's happened a few times now and it's fine after deleting the start menu item and then rechecking auto start in FindRun.  This is less of a bug report and more of a "keep your eyes open."  Like I said, I have no idea how this happens and I cant reproduce it.  Anyone else having this?  If not, I wouldnt worry about it too much... just keep it on the back burner!

it sounds like i need to revisit the startup checking and writing code, maybe move to storing startup trigger in registry which would be a lot simpler and less prone to these issues.
