Playing your first presentation when Windows starts

1.  From the main Repeat Signage screen, looks at the tabs near the top of the screen and select the 'Start up' tab.  Click on the 'Settings' button.  If you are prompted for a password, then enter your administrator password.  There is no password by default.  This should then display the 'System settings' form.
2.  On the 'System setting' form it will load on the 'Windows start up' tab.  You need to put a tick in the 'Automatically launch presentation (or playlist) on Windows start up'.  Then click on the 'Add' button. 

3.  The 'Screen record' screen appears.  Click on the 'Browse for a presentation' button.

4.  Click on the 'Browse' button and select 'First presentation.rsp' (this was created with the Creating your first presentation tutorial) and then click on the 'Open' button to return to the 'Select presentation file' screen. 

5.  Click on the OK button to close this screen, then OK again on the 'System setting' screen to set Windows to load this file automatically when Windows starts.

6.  You can test this by restarting Windows now. 

When you restart Windows, you will usually be prompted to select a user name or enter a username and password.  After doing this, Windows will load all of its start up programs, such as anti-virus software, and will then display your presentation.  See Playing your first presentation for how to keep Repeat Signage on top of other programs.

You can remove the Windows logon screen if you need to make Repeat Signage load by just turning on the computer.  See Windows start up - Removing the log on screen.

You may also need to Disable Windows screen saver and monitor standby.

Player settings

There are a number of settings for the player when playing Repeat Signage presentations.  There include an option to shutdown the computer a certain time each night, keeping the player on top of other applications, removing the 'Loading presentation ...' message when playing, specifying a company logo instead of a black screen when the presentations is loading, etc.  To access player settings, then on the main screen, click on 'File' then 'System settings' and go to the 'Player' tab.
