      Auto start my database

      Post

      Is there anything special I need to do to make widows launch FM Pro Adv 11 on start up?

      Can I just drag the database file icon to the "Start up" folder

      It just that I am heading overseas soon and in the event of a power cut I would like the database to load automatically , I guess the other problem is who is going to restart the PC?

      Looks like I might need to obtain a UPS for the PC and modem

      Any suggestions?

      Regards

          If you do this, make lots of backups. A forced shut down such as due to a power failure could damage a Filemaker file that is open at the time.

          You might want to consider using a FileMaker hosting company to host the file for you if the aim is to enable you to remotely access the database while you are abroad.
