Default kana reminder wont start

hi

anyone know why i cant get kana reminder to start with the pc. its suppose to set itself up like that automatically.
i have put a link to the program into the startup folder but all that happens is that the startup folder opens when the pc boots

thanks

Maybe you have a security program that is blocking it?
Have you tried using a third party program to launch it at startup?

Did you put its exe in the start folder?

From what I read on its site, the program has a setting to open with Windows automatically. Check within the program if that setting is disabled by any chance.

i did first put a short cut [recommended in an general article] in the startup folder then the program its self . thanks for looking on the site.

ive looked twice for a setting but will look again now

update: just looked again...nothing useful , and nothing to set when installing it. i don't want to give up cause its perfect for my needs

thanx

Putting a shortcut won't work. You have to copy the program exe and put it there.

I downloaded and installed Kana Reminder in Sandboxie.

I found that there is no option to start with Windows in the Options. But, the option is there when you right click on the program icon in the system tray. There you will see the option to "Start with Windows". Just check it.
