How to setup Sage 500 to automatically start when your computer boots

It may be convenient to setup Sage 500 to auto start every time your computer boots, especially if you are using Sage 500 with Windows Authentication.

  1. From your Windows OS, click on Start, All Programs and locate the Sage 500 application. Right click on it and select Copy
  2. From your Windows OS, click on Start, All Programs and locate the Startup folder from the list.  On the Startup folder, right click and select Open
  3. Click in the window that opened from step 2, and paste the Sage 500 application


That's all there is to it. Next time you start your machine, the Sage 500 application will launch and go right to the desktop if using Windows Authentication. If using SQL authentication, it will take you to the login prompt

By the way, if you want to prevent Sage 500 from automatically logging in, start from step 2 above to locate the Sage 500 icon and then delete it.
