Automatic start on launch

Post by eganders » Sun Jul 14, 2019 1:29 pm

I am trying to automatically launch BI5 on Windows 10. My computer launches automatically -- when I plug it in -- as the "Owner". I have the shortcut for BI5 in the startup folder for the "owner", but that does not seem to work.

Any ideas?

In Blue Iris options, clip the 'Startup' tab.

You can run BI as a service, and it will always run when Windows starts. The interface will not be running, but everything else is still working. To view the cameras, double-click the BI pgm icon. Leave the interface running, or, close it to save a bit of cpu - the service will still be running and recording/motion/webserver... will still be running.

If this is a setup you've done for a client, this would be the best option as it's out of the hands of the client, and always running - even if the close the BI pgm interface.
