Hi,

I need to mount images off of a network drive (a share). Most times the network is not quite ready when daemon tools starts up and trys to mount the images (so the automount doesn't happen).

Is there a way to delay daemon tools from trying to automount for a few seconds to give the pcs time to complete connecting to servers/shares?

Any help would be appreciated.

You could replace the "DAEMON Tools-1033" entry in your Registry under the RUN key with a link to a cmd or vbs script instead. After being initiated the script could sleep for a few seconds and then invoke DAEMON Tools.

For example:

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WScript.Sleep(5000)
WshShell.Run "C:\Progra~1\D-Tools\daemon.exe -lang 1033"
