Automatically Load Project at Startup

  • Have things changed? I found a thread here which explains how to automatically start a project at startup:


    Auto Load Project at Startup


    1. Create a link to Lumos.exe.

    2. Right click on the link and select "Properties"

    3. The path to Lumos.exe is stored under "Destination". Simply put the path to the project behind it

    Example:

    Before: Target => C: \ DMXC3 \ Kernel \ Lumos.exe

    After: Target => C: \ DMXC3 \ Kernel \ Lumos.exe C: \ Projekte \ DMXC3Projekt.zip


    but this doesn't work for me. This is exactly what I have in the shortcut I created in Windows:


    "C:\Program Files (x86)\DMXControl3\Kernel\Lumos.exe" D:\Users\Theater\DMXControl\Default.zip


    Then I tried this:


    "C:\Program Files (x86)\DMXControl3\Kernel\Lumos.exe" -nonetwork D:\Users\Theater\DMXControl\Default.zip


    And that doesn't work either. No matter the combinations I use or even where I put the quotes, It will always start a "New Project".


    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Hello!


    An other and definitely working alternative is, that you rename your project to DefaultProject.zip and copy them to the config folder of the Kernel. Usually you found them C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Roaming\DMXControl Projects e.V\DMXControl\Kernel\Config\, while {USERNAME} is the name of your account on your computer, where DMXControl 3 is running.
