Hello. That's not a bug, just a question.First of all, thank you for your program. It's wonderful :) I just can't figure out how to make it start before desktop appears. I want the right mouse button to be reassigned when the desktop appears, and the context menu does not open. Through Programs\Startup and the registry, there is still a gap of several seconds, while the program is not yet running, and the button works. I tried to run xmbc as a service, but it didn't work. I understand that this is not a question about the program, it works great, but maybe you can tell me something.

Sorry for the delay, but I don't really know how to answer this.
XMBC is started by means of being the the HKLM (or HKCU) registry startup items.So that does not execute until the session is logged on (I dont believe XMBC can interact with the session 0 (logon screen) anyway so I think its pointless running earlier.
You could maybe use the task scheduler instead, but I don't think that will make much difference, as it will still need to run during the logon process). As far as I know, there is no way of ordering the list in which programs in the run registry key start, Windows just starts them as it sees fit (it may be alphabetic - in which case the X in. XMouseButtonControl.exe could be making things worse (but I don't know - it may be the order in which the programs are added to the run key)
