Simple one: Start the server automatically

Postby exbuzz » Sun Jul 24, 2011 5:20 pm

I have Chaneru Server run whenever I startup my PC. But I have to remember to manually click the Start button each time. This happens more often that you would think due to windows update installs and such. So...how about an option to automatically start serving once the server program launches?

Add the -s or -sm to the target executable.
s - will start the server
m - will minimize it to the tray.

or

You can have an options.txt file in the "My Roku" folder with a sm in the first line.

If you go over to http://www.burningbushsoft.com and download the FREE Chaneru Installer you can use it to create the STARTUP shortcuts for you. It's simple to use. By default the most used options are selected. Just install the Chaneru Server using the FREE Installer and VIOLA your Chaneru Server will start automaticly during startup.

But Jim is right you can create the shortcut manually if you wish. Both ways will work. The installer is simpler if you are unfamilar with creating shortcuts with command switches.

Good luck.
