Hi, I've been trying to autostart xbmc and minimize it to tray on startup..
The second part is easy, i used trayconizer.
But auto-starting xbmc has been a problem for me.
My xbmc setup is a little different,
My drive C is deepfreezed (for public usage)
and i need to update the userdata quite often,
so i have to create userdata folder in drive D (which is not deepfreezed),
then use junction function from Link shell extension
to replace userdata in C,
so that the userdata can still be updated even though C is deepfreezed.
I also use firedaemon to force xbmc to act as service..
But strange thing is, when i test it on startup,
xbmc starts with confluence or the default skin (I use a customized skin),
which means that it can't find the junction-ed userdata folder from D.
So that means junction isn't working...
But when i test it manually by opening xbmc, it works, it found the junctioned userdata folder..
Does this mean junction function starts after shell service (daemon)?
Anyone know another way to accomplish this?

Sorry i post again because i thought this one uses different method.
about path subtitution.
I couldnt get it to work correctly, i pathsub Thumbnails and Database folder from C to D,
But it wont show fanart and movie information properly.
Here's the one without path sub:
And here's the with path sub to Thumbnails & Database folder
I really dont get this one because i copy the rest of the files in userdata, so it should be exactly SAME, not like this..
Also, it still shows "set content" and no movie information at all..
I'm gonna post a new thread about this, because it's a different problem, is that alright?
edit : i think i know the problem, path sub wont work for .db files, xbmc keeps creating new. db files on startup
