    Posted: 13 November 2017 at 10:06pm
Trying to configure via HKCU/.../Run key with following string:
 
<path_to_BGinfo64.exe> <path_to_Custom.bgi_File> /taskbar /nolicprompt
 
This works to provide easily available info without tattooing the desktop.  The only problem is that the popup automatically launches at login.  Anyone have a way to suppress the popup?  If not, any chance we can get a command line switch to do so?
 
Thanks in advance.

Add "/timer:0" to your command line.

Thank you for your suggestion @martyfreedom, but that doesn't make a difference.  I have tried placing that (as well as /silent and /iq) in various locations without success.

Can you paste in the whole string that you're putting in the registry?

What is the pop-up dialog box?

Thank you for asking and I apologize for the delayed response.
 
"C:\ProgramData\BGInfo\Bginfo64.exe" "C:\ProgramData\BGInfo\OurSettings.bgi" /timer:0 /taskbar /nolicprompt
 
According to the product page, the /taskbar switch prevents the desktop image from being tattooed (successful); adds an icon to the System Tray [notification area] (successful); and user can click to display the dialog with the appropriate info (successful). 
 
This is (in our opinion) perfect because then the end user does not need to close programs to get to the information (providing IP Addy and/or machine name so we can use Config Mgr Remote Control to access their computer), we've added the number for our HelpDesk. It just makes things easier for them.
 
The only down side I have is that to get that to enjoy the above benefits, we have to run the executable at login which will automatically displays the dialog so users need to click to close it (icon stays in system tray).

Hi, Arthur.  If you run the program with the /taskbar switch you will see the dialog based on your settings.
