Fascinated by WindowFX but...

Tuesday, April 28, 2009 by divyasugar | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

Yup psi

I download WindowFX from stardock. Love the effects, they are really cool. It runs perfect but when I enable to run at atartup, at next startup it won't start.

I can see icons coming in systray. There are 8 icons in my systray but there comes only 2/3/4 etc and nothing happens. I can't right click or anything. I press ctrl+alt+del to start task manager then I log off. I again log on but windows won't start fully.

I start task manager again and run msconfig uncheck wfxload.exe from startup and restart (from task manager as I couldn't access start menu.)

Having seen that, I placed shortcut to windowFX on desktop and everytime I start windows I click on this to run it and it works flawless now. Is there a boot-order-manager or such which let me choose order of startup entries. I hope this will let me run windowFX at startup and i don't have to click it everytime my window starts. I am happy with a click just asking.

My laptop config (Win XP SP2, Centrino 1.73 Ghz, 2 GB ram)

Help appreciated

Thanks a lot.

I don't know how XP handles it but can you set the service to a delayed start? That should let everything else load before WindowFX does.

I had a similar problem with ubericon 1.0.4 which won't let my xp to start.
