Startup Delayer 2.3 build 115 Released!

By Cliff Cawley on 15th March 2007

Startup Delayer 2.3 build 115 has been released and is ready to download!

Click here to download it now!

This build is to fix an issue that some users experienced with Runtime error '52'.

There has been some major changes to the way Startup Delayer works. There is no longer the concept of Startup Delayer 'controlling' the applications that you delay; Applications are now either delayed or not.

If you delay them Startup Delayer handles the launching. If you remove the delay, control is returned to Windows. The move between Startup Delayer and Windows is now totally transparent.

Another change is that the application icons are now displayed instead of the Windows/Startup Delayer icons.

Click here for a complete list of the changes since version 2.2 build 85.

Startup Delayer 2.3 preparing for Release

By Cliff Cawley on 4th March 2007

I'm now into the Final stages of testing Startup Delayer 2.3!

This means that I need some more help with testing it to ensure it is rock solid. If you have a spare machine that you could run it on, that wouldn't matter too much if startup items went missing (Shouldn't happen, but its possible it MAY if you find a bug), then please download the latest Beta and send me some feedback!

It should be fine on most configurations, however there may be the occasional setup that might cause it a problem and I'd like to find any and fix them before I release.

So please, if you can spare some time to play around with the latest Beta and send me some feedback, it would be greatly appreciated and will mean I can release very soon!

Spam be gone!

By Cliff Cawley on 14th February 2007

I've finally had enough of the hundreds of Spam messages that I get daily to the Support and other email addresses. The email addresses will be shutting down shortly and instead will be replaced with a web form for all contacts, bug reports, support requests, etc.

This should mean that the emails that you send to me will no longer get lost in the mass amounts of spam, or get classified incorrectly only to be deleted into oblivion!

The new web form can be found on the Help and Support page under 'Contact Support'

Cheers to providing better support!

Startup Delayer Feature Removal

By Cliff Cawley on 3rd February 2007

I am thinking about removing the Application Information feature from Startup Delayer because it has been causing no end of troubles for some users due to net connectivity, firewalls, etc.

If you feel strongly about this feature then please contact me and let me know! (positive and negative). Depending on feedback I may leave it in, however if by the 15th of February I have not received arguments either way, I will assume that I can safely remove the feature so that the users out there with problems will have to worry no more!

To get in contact with me, use the following link -> Product Support

Please use the subject 'Startup Delayer Feature Removal' when you do write to me.
