I just installed windows 8 on my HCPC.
Foobar works very well on this new bone.
I have a problem to "launch" foobar automatically at windows startup.
If I put a shortcut in the strat menu, it does not start.
If I put the. Exe, I receive an error message with "dll" missing.
If I go through the "planner spots", it does not start.

An idea?

You need to put shortcut to foobar2000 in %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup. Or you could make a scheduled task that starts it after logon. Or you could add entry to registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run.

Autostarting to work requires that you haven't modified foobar2000 compatibility settings to run it as admin.
