option to control Vueminder startup

Post by gjbth » Sat Sep 05, 2009 11:46 am

How about a check box option to toggle whether Vueminder starts at windows boot up or not.

Best Regards

Thank you for the suggestion. I'll see if this can be implemented in the next release.

Version 5.3.0 provides the requested option. There's a new checkbox in the Program Options window labeled "Run at Windows startup". Uncheck this option to disable automatic starting of VueMinder when Windows starts. There's also a new checkbox in the installation window to control this.

Note this setting is per user. If there are other people using the same computer, they can control this individually. However, if there was a previous installation, there may still be a shortcut left over in the Startup folder of other user profiles (it's only removed from the profile where the update is installed). In that case, the new option won't seem to do anything. The shortcut needs to be removed from the Startup folder.

Thanks again for the suggestion. If you find any problems with VueMinder not starting when you expect it should, or starting when it shouldn't, please let me know.
