Love it!! Not able to try out all the features as I’ve got parts of my system disassembled, but the layout is beautiful and the connection works fine. Will definitely look forward to offline mode. Is there any possibility we won’t need a Remote Desktop connection first to start Voyager before connecting the Dashboard?


Maybe put Voyager to start up automatically with windows

Tried putting a shortcut to Voyager in the startup folder, but it doesn’t start with Windows.

Yeah Windows has changed over the years that probably won’t work, you’d need to login first and even then it may not… Voyager would have to run in some service mode. So I don’t think it’s that easy anymore. Sorry! But I see where you were going with this.

You can leave pc logged on and lock the screen or you can setting up an autologon on your OS and add to Scheduled Task Manager a new task where you start Voyager. also Voyager can start with a parameter to run directly a dragscript if you need.

All the best
