Open Advanced control on start

Postby Mannivu » Thu Sep 29, 2016 12:11 pm

Hi. I've noticed that everytime I open the software, it also auto-opens the web control. Does anyone know how to stop the software from auto-opening the web control and auto-open the Advanced control window instead? Thank you in advance :D

Hello Mannivu, welcome to the Folding Support Forum.

Edit the Folding@home shortcut in the Startup folder. Removed the -- web client shortcut.

Advanced Control starts automatically, if you selected the auto start option in the client installer. But it will always run in the tool tray. You may open it from there. I don't know any way to open Advanced Control like the Web Control.

I'm still trying to figure out why that useless "web control" thing exists outside of the "web-based client" stuff.
I would REALLY REALLY prefer to open advanced control by default instead of defaulting to that worthless web control thing - a command-line option like the one for "web control" WOULD BE NICE.

If you don't want to open Web control everytime you launch the client using the FAHClient shortcut, just remove --open-web-control from the shortcut target ... this will just start the client in the background.

Then you can start Advanced control or Web control from the tray icon or from the shortcuts when you need them.

Agreed, "--open-advanced-control" would be a welcomed option.

I don't now if that's still the case in current v7 clients (7.4.4 and 7.4.16), but I remember that in some versions of the v7 client, starting FAHControl would also start FAHClient ...
