quick post today. i wanted xbmc to launch automatically when windows starts up. you can do this by creating a shortcut in the startup folder. rebooted the pc and xbmc loaded up. however, it minimised straight away so i thought shittttt it didnt work. turns out that my windows runs a scan and loads up some other apps causing xbmc to minimise after loading. luckily you can add a delay timer to xbmc and doneskies.
shortcut path = c:\program files\xbmc\xbmc -d 10
-d = delay
10 = how many seconds
