    Hi,

    I recently got a new PC and decided to put the old one in our guestroom as a HTPC.
    I set up Win7 and installed MePo, everything running perfectly, except that MePo won't autostart with windows though the option is checked. The Windows-Autologon is for a User with restriced access. I gave the admin password to configure MePo, I gave write access to c:\programdata\team mediaportal\ as well as c:\programs [x86]\Team MediaPortal\
    This is a client only installation.

    When I log in as admin, everything works as intended regarding autostart.

    As a workaround, I put MePo in the Autostart folder, this also works...but I'd like to understand why the option fails and if there's a workaround.

    When you give the admin password, the admin user profile is in use. It means the autostart setting is stored in the admin profile. Try to ad admin rights to that restricted user until you configure and remove it when you finished it.

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.

             

  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
