Run group of profiles on shutdown

Post by olidie »

Hi,

I want to run a group of profiles when shuting down Win 10 x64. Yes, I read about the problems and the workarounds ;-) A quick and simple question: do I have to flag every single profile in the group to run on shutdown or is there a possibility to mark the goup to run? Later would allow me to run the profiles in a certain order.

Thanks in advance
Oliver

Hi,

To run a group profile on Windows shutdown, and to configure SyncBackPro to shutdown the computer after the group has been run:

1. Enable (or tick) the option "Run this profile on Windows shutdown/logoff" under:

Modify group > Expert > When > Login/Logout settings page

(please enable this option only in the group profile, and not in the member profiles of the group)

2. Go to the last member profile in the group and insert a shutdown command (e.g. shutdown /s) under:

Modify profile > Expert > Programs-Before > After settings page

to shutdown the computer after the group has been run.

Please refer to the “Create a Group and configure the last profile to initiate a Windows Shutdown” section of this KB article for more details:

In addition, please note that we have recently fixed an issue when running profiles on Windows shutdown. So, I would suggest you to test with SyncBackPro beta version, which you can download from here:

http://www.2brightsparks.com/assets/sof ... _Setup.exe

Do not uninstall and reinstall, or you'll lose your profiles & settings. Just install 'over the top'.

Thank you.

Thank you. I will give the beta a try.

Just for me understand correctly: if a profile is part of a group the group information is stored within the profil including the order in which the profiles are started when used e.g. during shutdown?
