    Chapter 7  - Enhanced Launch Utility Introduction The launch utility on the MX9 has two functions: Process registry based Launch items Process script based Launch items. The registry based Launch items are processed before the script based Launch items. Registry Based Launch Items Note: The Registry based Launch items (documented here) are processed before the Script Based Launch items.
  • Page 242 The auto-launch process is as follows. 1. The launch utility opens the registry database and reads the list of CAB files to auto-launch. 2. First it looks for FileName to see if the CAB file is present. If not, the registry entry is ignored. If it is present, and the Installed flag is not set, auto-launch makes a copy of the CAB file (since it gets deleted by installation), and runs the Microsoft utility WCELOAD to install it.

    Launch Startup options The Launch utility uses registry entries to enable or disable startup options.
