Activate Autostart In Win 8.1


Recommended Posts

I installed btsync (1.3.106) on several devices, only on win 8.1 btsync does not start automatically.

The weird thing ist that it appears in the task manager in the autostart tab:

In BTsync the checkbox is ticked on:

I also tried to start btsync as admin and ticked the box but it hasn't changed anything.

@datroubler,

 

yes, that's weird. I have a few questions:
1) is there BitTorrent Sync's icon in Notification area? 

2) do other peers see Win8.1 machine as a connected peer when the pc in launched? 

3) is BitTorrent Sync process running (in task manager) - on tab "prozesse"?

@datroubler, 

 

Ok, in regedit go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\and create string value 

BitTorrentSync with "C:\path where you store binary\BitTorrent Sync\BTSync.exe"  /MINIMIZED

 

If it doesn't help, reinstall BitTorrent Sync.

Done --> Still no autostart

 

If it doesn't help, reinstall BitTorrent Sync. 

 

Done (the newer version) --> Still no autostart

datroubler, 

 

do you have a flag "Run as administrator" on shortcut properties on Compatibility tab? If yes, uncheck it. 

 

Also, try going yo Control panel-> Power options -> Change what the power button does (on the left). In Shutdown settings section uncheck option "Turn on fast startup (recommended)".
