Want to be able to start ACT 2009 automatically when windows starts

Hi People,

 

I was wondering if there was a way for ACT 2009 to start automatically when windows starts. What I have done so far id just coped the desktop shortcut into the users' startup folder but when ACT starts, I get the error message as described in the following post;

 

http://community.act.com/sage/board/message?board.id=ACT&message.id=14571&query.id=4590#M14571

 

If you click "Dont Send" though and then open ACT again manually it opens OK eror free. Could it be that ACT is trying to open before a dependent service has started?

Is there any other way of starting ACT automatically when windows starts without getting the error message?

 

Best Regards

- Type in msconfig and click Ok

- Select the Startup tab and uncheck ActSage.

Hi if you are unsuccessful with the suggestions below, I would try using a program that can delay the starting up of a program.

 

Look for a Windows Startup Manager software or alternatively look at writing a batch file that calls the Sage product after a number of seconds after loading windows.

 

This is fairly easy to implement, if you need more help feel free to get in touch and I will try and help where I can.
