Need to Autostart 7.07 on MAC Lion

Post by tpole » Tue Jun 12, 2012 3:06 pm

Hi,

I have just downloaded, installed and purchased Twonky 7.0.7 for MAC Lion.
After re-booting the MAC is appears that I need to login for Twonky to start.
I have looked at various options and cannot find where to set it to auto start on boot.

Is this a possibility? - please don't say i have to create an auto-logged in user to do this

thanks

There are two versions of Twonky 7. One requires a log-in. The other requires a license key. Here is the one which does NOT require a log-in.

Scroll down until you see TwonkyServer Special

Let me know if this doesn't address your problem. Thanks.

I think this was the one i originally downloaded, however i re-downloaded it, uninstalled the running one, re-booted & installed newly downloaded one. Same problem i'm afraid, it has set itself to run on login, if i log out the server stops.

The link i used was:

As above, this didn't work - as far as i can ascertain all downloadable MAC versions are the same.

Is your main problem the fact it's asking you to log-in OR the server is not auto-starting?
