Starting DAQFactory with Windows


Recommended Posts

I wanted to have DAQFactory start with windows, using the shortcut to load my project automaticaly. So far I have tried editing win.ini file and it didnt work as intended.

I have read about adding a entry into the registry for this, but I must know what is the syntax for acessing the shortcut so it loads the way I want. Thanks in advance!

This is to be done in Windows Professional.

I used a registry key under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Create a new string value, modify it, and insert the location of the .ctl file.

It should now show up in msconfig under the startup tab, you can check/uncheck it.

This just automatically opens the .ctl file when you login to Windows.


Hope this helps.

That will work too, but is slightly more complicated. Note that its better to create a shortcut to DAQFactory, specify the .ctl doc in the shortcut's target after the path to the DAQFactory executable. Clicking on a .ctl doc, or otherwise starting DAQFactory by referencing a document like this is somewhat unreliable. The user manual, under Other Features-> DAQFactory Runtime, show how to create this shortcut.
