Autorun Organizer (startup program manager)

#1 Post by Midas » Sat Jun 21, 2014 5:11 pm

Chemtable's Autorun Organizer is another startup manager I decided to test hoping it would be capable of prioritizing the launch of autorun programs, something I could not get it to do -- OTOH, it has a simplistic interface that might appeal to some, so here it is...

You can (Uni)extract the installer, and you'll find all you need in the '{app}' folder. When run, Autorun Organizer saves settings to the system registry at 'HKCU\Software\ChemTable Software\Autorun Organizer' and it creates a folder tree at '%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\ChemTable Software'; it also asks for permission to go online and retrieve application popularity rankings.

Running Dependency Walker it also possible to see that 'ChemtableStartupChecker.exe' and 'Updater.exe' aren't directly linked by the main executable, which also doesn't seem to deal very well with system variables (e.g., '%systemroot%'); moreover, 'ProgramDataStorage.const' is a text file with several program paths inside, but I haven't tried changing them.

Autorun Organizer does provide for an easy way to check various autorun locations from a common interface, so anyway I put together a basic yaP launcher config for Autorun Organizer at http://pastebin.com/bUidUc0y.

Autorun Organizer v2.46 released (changelog at https://www.chemtable.com/version-histo ... 0Organizer).

Note: still no mention of native portability -- although Chemtable also offers Reg Organizer in a portable package, which I haven't tested -- but a yaP launcher config is at http://rolandtoth.hu/yaP/configs/Autoru ... anizer.ini.
