Startup Manager 2.3.2 released

Like the previous one, the 2.3.2 release isn’t a major release either. But it certainly contains some new interesting interface features. For instance it now is possible to sort the start items in the main view by clicking the column headers and there are in-place tooltips for items that don’t fit their cell width.
The properties dialogs were updated too, now it is possible to select and copy the values.

Startup Manager also became better at handling invalid registry items and the bootcore exception handling was also improved.

    Hi! Startup Manager is a useful utility. One thing I would love to see you add is the ability save window size and position. Thanks for listening.

    I like the concept of controlling the startup sequence.
    Here is a few suggestions that may improve your product.\
    1. On the batch file the /wait will wait forever unless (I guess) the process returns a completed signal. However, if it is a continuing program, it will never be complete. e.g. I startup ThunderBird & Firefox and have them minimize to the system tray, The command screen just waits and waits ….. If I don’t use the /wait flag, then it doesn’t seem to be much of an improvement over the Windows. (except consistency).
    2. The ability to copy the Filepath and Flags to the Boot Order Tool. (or have another column in the main view for the order and then create the .bat file from that or just run it from there)

    Looks neat. I’d like to see a portable version without installer. e.g. it would use an .ini file in the app directory for settings.

    Well, in fact the visual studio .net 2003 project file contains settings for a portable version, I just never made it public :-)
    I’ll include a portable version in the next release.
