Really hide the main window on startup

Postby alex65 » Fri Jul 30, 2010 4:14 am

Hello,

I'm using core temp so it starts on windows startup with main window hidden.

The problem is that the main window appears for a second before being hidden. Wouldn't it be possible to read the settings before loading the main form and simply avoiding loading it according to settings?

It's not a real problem, but my computer is quite slow and the window sticks for several seconds, it's a mild annoyance.


Thank you!

It's not a problem to read the setting first, but it creates a problem if I start the window in minimized mode right away.
The way it works right now is a workaround for a display issue\corruption that occurs if the window is created in Hidden Mode.

Hi all I'm new here.
I get straight to the point
I have windows 7 x64, today I installed two compatibility updates from Windows Update and after reboot I get always the Core Tempx64 0.99.7 window open on desktop and I have to close it every time. Is there a way to fix this problem?
Thanks

Do you mean that Core Temp starts up with Windows? How is that a problem/bug? There's no need to fix anything.
Go into Options --> Settings and uncheck Start Core Temp with Windows.

Indeed that was the problem beginning, I thought checked that option, but the window was opening again, but it didnt open on windows logoff/login, was open only on reboot :roll: Then I rechecked the option and now after two/three reboots seem not open more, now Ill check as will in the next reboots
Thanks again for quick reply and sorry for my bad english :)

After some testing, every two/three reboots, CT continues to give me the same error, opens the main window even if it's set on start minimized.
Suggestions?

I don't know. It works fine for me with every reboot or restart of Core Temp on my systems.
