[Windows/MAC] Zappiti Server auto-startup
As from software version of Zappiti Video 4.21.243, Zappiti has disabled the function of Auto-Startup on Server when using Windows PC or Mac as the local server for Zappiti Video.
Users have to enable the Zappiti Server manually on every time when the system is started in order to allow the Zappiti Player to locate its Server to extract all infos on its database.
It is strongly suggested Zappiti bring this function back as an option on Zappiti Video setting in order to save us time for starting the Server manually.
I desperately need this. It's a deal breaker for me as my server shuts down and reboots automatically each day. If anyone can tell me how to create a batch file to execute a wpf file as a workaround I would be very grateful.
I agree bring back auto-start-up please. To use this function you need to go back to version 4.19.223 or earlier that was the last time it worked.
I have tried every version since then in the hope that it has been restored. But it hasn't - so I use the new version for awhile then revert back to a version that works correctly.
Shame really that such a good program is let down by this. After all other similar programs all 'boot up' without these restrictions.
Disable UAC and significantly degrade my PCs security? Nope not gonna happen. Please fix this.

Strangely, putting the shortcut in startup on windows 10 doesn't seem to work either for me, my workaround was to disable UAC and use a batch file to launch the server app.
