Vietcong Dedicated Server System Startup Launcher
I wrote this little program in c # because:
1-I was tired of starting the server on mini pc via remote desktop
2-more time at home because I work there because of the covid
3-the will to study a bit of c #

When windows starts, it will start the dedicated server and click on the "Start" button automatically.

Some instructions follow.

1) At first run it presents the path of the file itself.
2)You must click on the SELECT VIETCONG DEDICATED SERVER EXECUTABLE button and select the vcded.exe file.
There is no control over the file name and path, so in theory it could launch any other executable.
3)You then need to click on the ADD TO WINDOWS STARTUP button. This will create a quick start line to the registry, with a start argument, so the program understands that it was started from windows and not manually.

The REMOVE FROM WINDOWS STARTUP button will become selectable. The two buttons are mutually clickable.
If the registry entry has been entered and the executable is moved or renamed, or
1) install the key
2) I uninstall Vietcong and this program and I forget about it for 20 years
3) reinstall it
The entry will be found again by the program

In case this exe is moved or renamed it will advised , and you will need to remove and re-add to the registry.
I was unable to handle the START button directly with the windows API, so I calculated the position of the window and in percentage the position of the button, simulating a mouse click.

I have tested it successfully with Vietcong Starter and following resolutions:

Write me for problems or suggestions
I hope it can help someone in my same situation! Smile

We have solved this for a long time, the servers will start automatically even after a crash.

I have not found any solution or perhaps I have not tried well?
However meanwile i did some practice with c # and the program works for me.
I have only one home server and perhaps for some normal user who uses a minipc like me, it can be convenient, and I'm happy to share it if it can be used by others.
If your solution is already shared, could you link the discussion to me or write me the name of the program?
Hey SodoMyzer,

I'm not sure if Homi wrote back to you privately and I'm not sure what he is showing you, but I can give you another option. However, this option only works if you want to autorun a single server. If you want to autorun more than one server, this will not work...

Create a .ded file
First, open vc.ded normally and create a maplist and set up your server settings.
Then on the first tab click 'Save'. This will save a .ded file in your \vietcong\dedicated\ folder.

Move the .ded file
Move the .ded file into your root \vietcong\ folder.

Associate the .ded file type
Right click on your .ded file and choose 'Open with...'
Select the vcded.exe program to open this file type, then tick the option "Always use the selected program to open this file type".

Add a shortcut to your start up folder
Finally, make a shortcut to the .ded file and place the shortcut in your startup folder.
Now, when the pc boots, it will launch the ded which will launch your dedicated server, settings and map list.
