Visual TaskTips

Post by shahed26 » Fri Jul 06, 2007 6:12 pm

Hi

i downloaded Visual TaskTips v2.1 addon but it does not start automatically with windows. i have to start it manually by going to "start, programs"

Can someone please make the addon Visual TaskTips to slipstream into my xp cd please. if you can make the addon then please have it configured to startup automatically with windows, so i dont have to go to "start, programs" to start the program manually.

this is the only addon i need to make my xp look like vista.

thank you
your hard work is always appreciated :(

Just drag the shortcut to Task Tips into your "Startup" folder and it should start when windows starts. That's the way I do it.

You can make an .inf file cantaining the AddReg with the following lines.
I dont know where your app is located but this is a sample.

Code: Select all

HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run","Task Tips",0,"""%16422%\Task Tips\Tasktip.exe"

HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run","Task Tips",0,"""%16422%\Task Tips\Tasktip.exe" here is where you app exe is located.
