Re: Auto start

Was APRSIS32.exe ever working properly on the computer without the "auto start"?
Are you placing the APRSIS32.exe file in a folder that is read/write?

Windows has become very particular about what goes into c:\Program Files and c:\Program Files (x86).

For that reason, it is recommended you create a folder structure outside those directories:

Some have copied the APRSIS32.exe file to the desktop or their "home" directory, but that limits access (typically not a problem unless you have multiple users of the same APRSIS app).

Once the App is working properly, the auto start method should also work, but I still recommend Task Scheduler as you have more control.  These files are in xml format, so are fairly easy to troubleshoot.  Another key is the logon user.

I tried both ways usually the shortcut works but not this time. I'm scratching my head on this.

Tried making it a task that starts 1 minute after logon but 2 minutes after it starts the system crashes. I'm going to do a freash install and try again

It sounds like you put a copy of the APRSIS32.EXE into the startup folder instead of a shortcut pointing to APRSIS32.EXE.

I've added aprsisce to the startup folder in win 10 but it doesn't work it acts like a new installation and short cut in the folder does nothing

I would like aprsisce to auto start after a reboot since it's on a pc at a remote site.

Has anyone successfully done this?
