ShadowStart is a small utility that should be called from
If the activation-key is pressed down a requester pops up,
asking you if you want the WBStartup-drawer, the
User-Startup script or both to be disabled.
This means, you can bootup a "clean" Workbench,
without any programs in WBStartup or User-Startup executed!
And also a new shell-window can be opened for changing
things befor executing the startup-sequence.
(Sourcecode is included.)
Before any key checks are performed ShadowStart checks if the
SYS: partition is currently being validated.
If yes, Shadowstart waits 3 seconds and checks the disk
When the validation is finished, ShadowStart automatically
continues with its normal execution.
The main effect of this feature is that startup execution will
be delayed until the SYS: partition is validated
(no more disk-trashing on startup).
The validation check is always performed, if the activation-key
is pressed or not.
Ideas and suggestions are always welcome!
Two version of ShadowStart are included,
one for Kick/WB 3.1 and one for Kick/WB 2.0+.
