CAT takes quite a long time to autostart when starting Windows 7 HP 64bit.
Starting MiniDeluxe it can't find a CAT port, WSJTX and HRD DM780 do not get
CAT and PTT COM ports from SmartSDR CAT.

Closing SmartSDR CAT and restarting it manually solves this problem.
This behaviour is new with 1.10.8.30 and has never happened before.

Ok, I took Neal's good advice and created a batch file, which I compiled:

@echo off
cd C:\Program Files\FlexRadio Systems\SmartSDR\DAX\
start DAX.lnk
cd C:\Program Files\FlexRadio Systems\SmartSDR\SmartSDR CAT\
start Cat.lnk
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\MiniDeluxe\
start MiniDeluxe.exe
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Ham Radio Deluxe\
start HRDLogbook.exe
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\FRStack\
start FRStack.lnk
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\HamApps\JTAlert\
start JTAlert.exe /wsjtx
cd C:\Program Files\FlexRadio Systems\SmartSDR\
start SmartSDR.exe --serial=XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX
exit

(I used links for some programs to start them minimized)

Now all is OK again, Problem soved!
