Solved Errors when starting a progam with Startup

When starting Juno using the Startup Folder I get a Juno Error 14. However if I just start Juno using a shortcut Icon all is well. I have been working with Juno and we have done a complete uninstall/reinstall of Juno and still have the same problem. Is there anything in Windows Vista that could be causing the problem?

Thanks for your interest. Uncle Dewey

The order that the files are shown in the startup folder menu have nothing to do with the order they are executed.

Your modem is always connected to the Internet but when you start up your computer, it has to load the network card (or onboard chip) drivers so it isn't connected right from the start.

Have a look at this software, it lets you set a delay of programs in your startup folder. Run it and set the delay for Juno for 1 minute after startup. I realize this is a long time but this is just for testing purposes. If it works, then you can play around with the startup delay time until you get a good balance between time and functionality.

Why do you want Juno to start automatically rather than manually clicking the shortcut when you need it?

I start both Firefox and Juno on startup as they are the two primary programs that I work with. Also, when I boot my computer the first thing in the morning I want to see what mail I got since signing off the night before.

How did you put the Juno shortcut in the startup folder? I would be willing to bet you accidently copied the Juno executable to the startup folder and not a shortcut to the executable.

I was hoping you were correct so I checked the startup folder, but it is a shortcut. I copied the Juno's exec.exe to the desktop and tried to open Juno, but it would not work.

And so it goes. Thanks for your interest. Uncle Dewey

What happens when you go to the startup folder and double click on the shortcut? If it works this way, it may be a timing issue where the shortcut is run before your network connection is established. If this is the case, there are programs you can use to delay startup items

Yes it does come up when I press the icon in the startup folder. There are three icons in the startup menu so I renamed the Juno icon so it is the last to be invoked and on a restart I still got the error and Firefox open. In addition, my modem is connected to the Internet through Comcast cable and before I even turn the computer on the modem indicates I am connected to the Internet.

I have Juno in the taskbar to show when Juno is invoked--don't know if that could be the problem. I'll have to give it a go.

Thanks again for your interest. Uncle Dewey

I used to use the Juno email service in the mid 90's when dial-up was pretty much the only option available. It was a free service (ad driven) & no ISP was required. You simply logged in, the program would then dial into Juno & pick up your email (& ads), then quickly disconnect. You would then read your mail offline, write your response(s), & when you clicked SEND, the program would reconnect, send the email, pick up any new emails (& new ads), then disconnect again. It actually worked pretty well.

I realize the Juno software you have installed is completely different than what I just described, but my question to you is - why do you need it at all? You stated that you're "connected to the Internet through Comcast cable", so that would mean the Juno software really isn't necessary. Just use the web-based email.

I will try the delayer when I get a chance--I have downloaded it. Their description of the need for a delayer made sense, However, the programs in the startup folder show up in the same sequence as they are stacked in the startup folder. But I have convinced myself that it is not a Juno problem,

I have used Juno off-line since the days of dialup service and continue to use it today. Juno is only connected to the Internet during the time I'm downloading new mail or uploading a message I've written. I also keep many messages for future reference and I feel my saved messages are totally safe and it is one less access to my computer. So I plan to stick with Juno off-line which now costs me $8 a year

Thanks ever so much for all of your interest and advice. I appreciate it. Uncle Dewey

Hi Again,

I have now installed "Startup Delayer", first at 1' which worked well. I then tried 30" which did not work well. I then set it at 45" and did not have any errors after three reboots. So your information has been very helpful--I have it free for 30 days, so I'll eventually find out what it will cost me.

Thanks a mil!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Uncle Dewey

Uncle Dewey,

That software is free. You only pay to upgrade it. I'm not sure what they mean by upgrade, but it is my thought that if it is as functional as you need it to be right now then there is no need to upgrade, which should keep it free. M

Nice software THX

Thanks for the info. All I remember seeing is I could have it for 30 days free, although I don't see it at the moment. I'll just wait and enjoy.

Tx, Uncle Dewey
