Speedfan and T-Balancer

Hello all,

Hopefully an easy one you can help me with.

I run the MCubed T-Balancer BigNG controller and Speedfan as my monitoring software.

Ive set the curves to where i want them and now need to get Speedfan to run on bootup before the BigNG software kicks in to control my fans.

What happens at the moment is XP boots, T-balancer software kicks in,as ive set it to read the speedfan sensors and speedfan is running the fans run at 100%,

i manually run speedfan then all works as i want it too.

so i would like to know if its possible to run speedfan first?

perhaps a registry hack maybe?

Thanks in advance for your help.

This sounds like an answer to your problem:

PS. The only other alternative without installing a program like I liked above is to change how your programs load on startup. Disable the automatic start on boot with each program, then write a batch file that runs them in the order you want and put a shortcut to the batch file in your startup group.

start it using a batch file.

Run the program that you want to start first.

then wait - cant remember if there is an actual command as standard but you can get it to work by using ping for example.

then run the other program.

Dirty but it will work - least till you find a better way.

a better way of doing it would be with a vbs script

Code:
Dim Wsh

Set Wsh = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Wsh.Run """Notepad.exe""", 2

WScript.Sleep 800 ' Controls Time to wait before continuing

Wsh.Run """calc.exe""", 2
Copy and past this into a notepad document and save as a .vbs file

Edit "Notepad.exe" and "calc.exe" to the location of the files you would like to run

Wsh.Run """calc.exe""", >2<

1 Activate & take focus

2 Activate & minimize.

3 Activate & maximize.
