Startup Manager 2.4.2 re-released

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

Today we re-released Startup Manager 2.4.2. Te reason for this re-release are numerous fixes in the OpenCandy version included in the installer. So if you already have Startup Manager 2.4.2 installed there is no reason to update because the Startup Manager version included in the installer is exactly the same.

Startup Manager 2.4.2 can be downloaded right here.
There also is an ANSI version available and source code available over here.
And finally there is a list with installers for the translations (all translations are also included in the Startup Manager setup file).

Startup Manager and OpenCandy

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

Together with Startup Manager 2.4.2, today Opencandy was released for the first time. And the brand new version of Startup Manager already makes use of it.

Opencandy’s goal is to fuel innovation and prosperity in the software community, and deliver the best applications to the right users.

OpenCandy is a network, created by six founding DivX members, of software creators who like to increase the visibility of their application by recommending each other’s. This is done by inserting an extra page in the installer to create a user-friendly experience and offer optimal engagement for making a software recommendation. You can visit this page to learn more.

Software is too hard to find, impossible to discover, and not intuitive enough to manage. We will enable people to discover and manage software by delivering the best, most relevant applications to them.

Because Startup Manager is yet another opensource project that is certainly worth giving a try, but not known by a lot of people, we decided to join OpenCandy and hope for the best!

100.000 downloads and counting!

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

And we have more good news to announce. We have finally reached the milestone of 100.000 downloads! Since the first release back in May 2005 the number of downloads has been increasing almost monthly. The following graphic shows this trend.

Downloads graph

As you can see, about half of the 100.000 downloads so far happened in the last 8 months. So I think we can say we’re doing a good job so far.

Cheers!

Edit offline user’s startup items

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

As administrator, you might not only want to edit only your own startup configuration and the global startup configuration, but also the startup configuration of invidual users.

In order to implement this feature in Startup Manager, we could provide some list with user names in Startup Manager and mount the user registry based on the selection in this list. But the fact is that this is only possible on Windows NT.

So we should ask ourselves the following question: “Is it OK to drop support for Windows previous to Windows 2000? “. In my own opinion it is, but what do you think?

New website

Saturday, May 24th, 2008

Anyone who hit the “project web site” button on the sourceforge page or tried to access http://st-m.sourceforge.net/ will have noticed that he came on a different web page. I suggest you get used to it since that’s the new Startup Manager website. It is accessible through http://startupmanager.org/ and is hosted by 1 & 1 Internet inc.

Our goal with this new website was to provide a fresh and modern looking design to anyone who is interested. The website uses WordPress as backend and is designed by George French (aka Deimnos).
As of today the new website replaces the old one, but it is not yet completely finished. The download page still needs some final touches and the wiki section isn’t implemented yet.

Enjoy the new website and the 2.4.1 Startup Manager release. And as always; all comments are appreciated.
