How to Remove Splash Screen

Postby pegasus44 » Sat Aug 07, 2010 3:31 am

I have seen two mentions of "-nosplash"
I do not know how to use the Command Line. Also I do not open MW from a short cut.
I use a programmable keyboard where I have entered the path to mailwasher.exe
i.e. "C:\Program Files (x86)\FireTrust\MailWasher\MailWasherPro.exe"
I should be grateful for a simple instruction. Of course, it would be easy if there was a box to untick in 'Settings'.

If the keyboard shortcut allows it, the way to use switches is:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\FireTrust\MailWasher\MailWasherPro.exe" -nosplash

Seems to work for MW2010. It was something I was thinking of looking into earlier. Thanks for the pointer.

Corrected (My Bad added the space where needed):
"C:\Program Files (x86)\FireTrust\MailWasher\MailWasherPro.exe" -nosplash

This may work, the one I offered definitely works. I tried it.

The quotes have to be in the right place.

You need them because there are spaces in the path. In this case in "Program Files (x86)".

In essence, the quotes say "Here is the program".

Including the switch inside the quotes can break the command.

This worked perfectly. I noted the leading space before -nosplash

Corrected:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\FireTrust\MailWasher\MailWasherPro.exe"-nosplash

Since the first attempt was functional I did not try without the leading space.

Thank you both for your prompt replies.
When a switch is required again I may be able to implement it.
