Add short delay to Start Automatically

When I have VirtuaWin set to Start Automatically when I run the platform, it doesn't always start. If I exit the platform and restart it after this has happened, then VirtuaWin launches. Is there a way to add a short delay, perhaps 1 or 2 seconds, to PortableAppsMenu.ini as an option so it will launch reliably?

Not In the Platform

Not currently in the platform no. You could start a different EXE with a delay before starting VirtuaWin. Are you using VirtuaWin Portable?

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Yes, I use VirtuaWin

Yes, I use VirtuaWin Portable. It works well when it starts, but it just doesn't seem to start when set to Start Automatically when I launch the platform initially. If I exit the platform and then start it again, it will launch.

closing

Are you closing VirtuaWin correctly prior to shutting down your system?

Sometimes, it's the simplest and most obvious solutions that evade us. VirtuaWin starts up reliably now after explicitly exiting the app before shutting down my system. I checked it 5 times before I was satisfied.
