Kodak EasyShare 3.0 Startup Folder Issue

I can't believe this hasn't been asked before, but I couldn't find any posts
on it in Google.

As there is no option in the app to automatically start with Windows, most
users probably put it into the startup folder. With the original software
that came with my DX3900 had a separate transfer app that would simply start
in the systray and when you transferred files with it, *it* would open the
main program. With EasyShare it opens in the main window every time you
boot. I've tried every argument I can think of in the shortcut, and nothing
gets it to close to the systray without having to manually do it. I'm
assuming I'm missing something here?

Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks....

Dan

The installer should have created a Kodak or something like that folder
in the All Programs list. Somewhere in that folder will be the
application that you want to use. You create a shortcut to desktop and
copy it into the quicklaunch toolbar. Then, open Start/Run/type in:
msconfig [OK]/select Startup Tab/find the easyshare application that
autostarts on boot and uncheck the box. When the app is in the
quicklaunch bar, it is only taking up memory and cpu when you ask for
it.

That, at least, is the way most camera software is installed and run.

Something is wrong with the installation of your software, I'd try to
uninstall and re-install.

The software should install itself in the startup folder so that when you
start the computer (or log-in on a multi-user system) EasyShare will start .

That start from the startup folder should NOT start the product full screen
but only in the system tray. Starting from the desktop icon will start
full screen.

Thanks Bill, re-installing fixed it, but the problem was finding the
argument they used in the startup folder shortcut .

If you look at the properties of that shortcut, it has an argument of "-h"
on the end, and that's what makes it start only in the systray. The regular
shortcut in the program's folder doesn't have that on the end so it opens
full screen. If you ever decide to take it out of the startup folder, just
move it to a different folder, don't delete it, or you'll be in the same
mess I was.

Guess I should have just asked someone to check theirs;>)
