I think this is a bug in Hamachi2, and should be fixed by Logmein.
My Hamachi Tunneling Service did have startup type as "Automatic" and it started on every Windows power up.
But, for my machine, the service stop from time to time!
I notice that the service stop when it trying to connect to some of then "off line" or "bad connection" VPN client, (the green button blink and stop with yellow, or red). During retrying, sometime the service simply stop!
I can restart the service as mentioned above, but it should not happen like this. Hope that there should release version "2.1" soon!
I have this issue on several of my Clients, however, hamachi2 starts anyway and eventually connects. I just do not get the interface to pop-up until i manuall start hamachi2.
Based on this I suspect an addition of DependOnService stringwith the correct value(tcpip?,lanmanworkstation?,NetBIOS?, NetBT?) in the HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Hamachi2Svc key would solve the problem
i got the best solution... in case you guys haven't notice at the services where the logmein thing is... it says at properties clearly what the path to the actual executable is... and that is hamachi tunneling exe not the ui one... and also you can see a -s at it... well ta da! make a shortcut to the exe(the one with tunneling engine thing:hamachi-2.exe) and add at path a -s. this also opens hamachi for me... i mean no need to use the other shortcut well at least for me...
Oh i added a download also in case you guys can't make it work... oh... and notice that the path to the downloaded shortcut i put is for my computer... change it accordingly to ur path.
Thank for the program that work for me... just a request: now when hamchi start a windows of hamachi appear and i must close it, while before this little window not appear and go directly in system bar..
