windows taskbar labview start icon

Highlighted

I want to start a LabVIEW-exe as autostart after power-on of a windows-PC.

This exe should run in background. An icon should be displayed in the right info part of the task bar.

Clicking this icon should open the frontpanel of the running LV-program.

How can I force windows to do this?

 

Thank you

http://vlaurie.com/computers2/Articles/msconfig.htm will tell you how to start a windows program automatically.

 

You might be able to setup the properties so it is minimized this way -- otherwise, you can also do it by setting File--> VI Properties --> Windows Run-Time Position ... set Position to minimized for the main VI.

Hey Theo,

 

a autostart exe is not a problem because its only nessecary to copy the exe in the autostart folder of windows.

And for the windows toolbar you are able to use this link : http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/E277CBA8C9065C1A86256D250021D9FA?OpenDocument

 

Kind regards,

Is it not better to just create a shortcut in the autostart folder pointing to the exe file



Besides which, my opinion is that Express VIs Carthage must be destroyed deleted

Elmar,

 

Actually, it's "All roads lead to Rome"

Tank's for your help all.

Short explanaition what I look for:
       Start LabVIEW-exe in background and displayed as icon in systray (not minimized)

Now the situatuion:

MattBradley: I tried to start via mscofig (regedit) by setting the exe-path
             Result: The LabVIEW-exe starts, but in the normal way with minimized (open) panel - not in background and icon in the systray.

 

It found a solution via .net. It is not tested well.

.NET constructor node: System.Windows.Forms(2.0.0.0) -> MenuItem       and

                                       System.Windows.Forms(2.0.0.0) -> NotifyIcon
