Automatic startup after boot

ThinkPad with Win 2K:

I thought that checking "Start GPSGate after Boot" in the GPSGate
"Startup" options box would cause GPSGate to start when the computer
is booted. It does not, and when the box is checked, the check is removed after rebooting. What is the purpose of this checkbox? Do I have to place a shortcut to GPSGate in the Windows Startup folder to get it to start automatically when the computer is booted? Thanks for your response.

Yes, checking "Start GpsGate after boot" will make GpsGate to auto start when you reboot your computer.

What this function does is to write an entry in the registry. All files listed in this key are started when Windows starts.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
GpsGate = ...\GpsGateXP.exe

Possible reason why this fails for you:

-> You have an anti-virtus program that removes the above entry as soon as it has been written.
-> You exit Windows by turing of the power of your computer. The entry is written to the registry when GpsGate exists properly.

And yes, you can make a shortcut in "Windows Startup" instead, that will work as well.

Hi,

i've got similar problem in PDA - the 'Restart at soft reset' chkbox is disabled at all time.

is there a way for the GpsGate to start automatically after soft reset ?

i can't add a shortcut to \Windows\StartUp so the best solution for me will be by settings within the GpsGate, second best solution is Registry, any other solution will be welcomed...

10X,

Alon

I have the same Problem: even if I check the box: start after boot, it will not. Must I disactivate my antivirus, or what is the solution?

Hi, I have no idea how to create shortcuts directly in Pocket PC Windows but it can be easly done when exploring your PDA through Activesync's explore when you have it connected to your desktop PC, and then placing it in Windows/Startup folder of your PDA.
My GpsGate 1.10 was starting perfectly after every soft reset. However ver.2 has avery well working 'Start after soft reset' tick box in advanced tab.
Good luck.
