Dexpot not starting

Postby hypothesys » 14.11.2014 07:44:00

I have recently installed a ramdisk (Softperfect Ramdisk 3.4.6) and since then Dexpot will not start correctly when windows starts.
The splash screen is displayed but the program never completes. If I check task manager Dexpot.exe*32 is shown as running. I end
the process in task manager and then re-run the application from start menu and it starts up fine.
Any help would be appreciated as it is annoying not to be able to have the program load correctly with windows startup.

:dex:

Do you run Dexpot as administrator?

Try this. Go to "Settings > General", disable the "Start with Windows" option and click "Apply". Re-enable the option and click on OK.

Patrick,
Tried that and no joy unfortunately.
The ramdisk software I referred to is freeware so if you want to try with dexpot the download link is
https://www.softperfect.com/products/ramdisk/

The problem with Dexpot starting with windows only started after using ramdisk.
I have configured the ramdisk to be repository for \temp and \tmp

Could you check if it works with 'Run as administrator' disabled?
