Making Qt Apps(You develop) starting on System Startup, all OSes



  • I did a bit of digging on Google, but didn't find nothing for my particular question, does Qt support applications you write to start up on system startup? Or no? Or is that something else I'd have to rely on?



  • From the Qt point of view, it doesn't matter if the application is started at system startup or not. Qt, however, does not help you install the application in such a way that it is started at system startup.

    Aaaah, so in Windows I'd add to something, not really familiar with Windows much, I mainly stick to my Linux, and haven't used Mac since Apple Mac, heh, long time ago.. But yeah, in Linux I think it'd be under system settings.



  • Well, as far as I remember there was a similar thread a few days, probably a week ago. You might try to find it.

    LOL, yeah, I don't think anybody would want to go digging for such a thread, not even mods, =P. 100s and 100s of posts are posts a day, LOL, see you in about a week when you find it, =P.



  • Have you seen this little box on the top right? It is called the "search box" and it will help you finding stuff.



  • on windows, it depends what you mean by system startup.
    If you want to start it for each logged in user, just add it to startmenu\StartUp
    If it must run during windows boot, even with no logged in user: create a service. But a service does not have a UI!

    Of course, but it's not that important, just a random Q.
