    Posted: 03 July 2005 at 10:03am
Okay so I feel like a complete idiot but could someone please explain to me where I access the command line from?
I place either the executable or a shortcut to it in my start-up file but then where do I enter the command line switches? Do I add them to the "Start In" line on the property's page or what?
 
I'm sorry for being such a lamer and really do appreciate anyone giving me some assistance
 
Thanks
Chuck

put the executable somewhere else and create a shortcut to it in your startup folder. right-click the shortcut, choose Properties. then you should get a window with the shortcut's properties. add the command line switches and the end of the target line.

HTH,

I tried to do this as the administrator for other users, but I can't seem to get it to work the way I want. I want it to display some of the basic options saved in my "config.bgi" file to the desktop to every user that gets created, but I want it to run in the background without the program to come up with the 10 second timer. I use the c:\bginfo\bginfo.exe c:\bginfo\config.bgi /timer:0 and I also tried to and tried the /all, which I thought these switches would disable the 10 second option and allow all the users to have this come up automatically. 

Also, is the shortcut suppose to be linked to the bginfo.exe or the config.bgi file? I've tried both and come up short of what I want.

What is a more detailed and defined solution? Also how and what is the registry fix to allow the (Which one)"bgfinfo.exe or config.bgi" to configure the options to come up for each user?

I would try using a batch file.
I had problems with the shortcut.

I had the same problem with the Timer and found that if you just put the" /timer" switch without any further parameters, it skips the timer altogether.
