Autostart winuae in 64bit windows

I was carrying out a project, I already proceeded to configure my system I miss the windows regedit key to start automatically WinUAE at boot
it's this one?
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ WindowsNT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon <---- Shell

Example:
c: \ programs \ winuae \ winuae.exe -f "C: \ programs \ WinUAE \ Configurations \ amiga.uae"
is it right?

Also not selecting "Miscellaous" "Show GUI on startup"
should it start automatically is right?

Thanks, I hope I did not have a wrong section if I apologize.

I would say that you put a new "String" value for "WinUAE" = "C:\Programs\Winuae\winuae.exe -f amiga.uae" in:

Code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Hi DamienD, thanks for the reply.
I was an example to understand what to do
my exact path is this:
C: /Winuae/winuae64.exe

which path should I create to do the autostart?

Thank you very much for your advice

Thanks for the advice, I created a very light version with my personal win64 bit license.
Now everything is ready.
The requirements are directx service packs with the drivers of your computer.
I wanted to ask if this topic can be covered in this section or should I move it?
I need some advice on how to alleviate the CPU load and still optimize the system
Is it possible to talk about it to improve the experience with winuae?
Thank you!

I apologize, I realize that I asked a rather strange question, but I solved it.

Now I just need to know how do I start winUAE automatically with the selected configuration?

At boot winUAE starts automatically but I have to press start to start it, how do I start it automatically without pressing start?

Mine is just a passion for Amiga :-)

Thanks for any help.

Save config with misc panel "Show GUI on startup" unticked. Or append -s use_gui=no in command line.

3.6 (and latest 3.6 betas) don't need extra DX installations anymore in D3D11 mode.

This has sort of been already answered in this thread and also in this thread: "keyboard controller" issue

Anyway, modify your registry line to be:

Code:
C:\Winuae\winuae64.exe -f "amiga.uae" -cfgparam use_gui=no

Thanks a lot but in miscellaneous it is only selected faster rtg

I would have another question I hope is inherent.
My configuration is called ATA.uae
so the keys in regedit are ATA.uae and not amiga.uae
also my keyboard if it can be useful does not support F12 I have to do ALT + TAB to access the winuae menus, I do not think this is important I think.

I'll look at the post immediately to see if I can solve it. Thank you very much

Now I'm confused

Doing what either Toni or I mentioned will start winUAE automatically with the selected configuration

So, your configuration is not called "amiga.uae" but "ATA.uae"...

Ok then, set either one of these for your registry line:

Toni's example:
Code:
C:\Winuae\winuae64.exe -f "ATA.uae" -s use_gui=no
My example:
Code:
C:\Winuae\winuae64.exe -f "ATA.uae" -cfgparam use_gui=no

I try now. thank you
although I think it was all right but did not go in autostart
I'll add the line
C: \ Winuae \ winuae64.exe -f "ATA.uae" -cfgparam use_gui = no
or
C: \ Winuae \ winuae64.exe -f "ATA.uae" -s use_gui = no

Thank you!

Trust me, it will work

...I tested both lines before posting (not in the registry but via my WinUAE shortcut).

DamienD, Toni, thank you, it works perfectly now.
I can continue with the other changes. Thank you!

Only one last question is it possible to create multiple configurations
for example 3.9.uae afaos.uae os41.uae

or is it better to eventually create a startup that works in some way?

Thanks again! :-)

Well, you can't exactly load 3 configurations at once really so the answer is no.

You could write a batch file that runs when Windows starts and gives you options to select either of the 3 configurations to run.

I can quickly knock one out for you if you like?

Ok, have created a quick batch file from one of my old huge ones i.e. my SNES DVD

Here's how it looks when run:



I've also used Quick Batch File Compiler to make it into an .EXE file.

File is in The Zone! for you, just save this somewhere and then change the registry entry to point to this

If you want anything changed i.e. displayed text / colours etc. then let me know.

You don't need Quick Batch File Compiler; I just mentioned that this is what I used to make the written .BAT file into an .EXE file.

Ok, so download the file "WinUAE_ConfigurationSelection.exe" from The Zone!

You can name it anything you like though...

Put this somewhere on your hard drive and then change your registry entry to point to this file.

Example:

Code:
<path>\WinUAE_ConfigurationSelection.exe
