Author Topic: prevent launcher from starting up automatically  (Read 1595 times)


I am evaluating substance, in the launcher I have selected to not startup Substance at windows startup, however after restarting my computer it still launches automatically, the only difference is that it start minimised.

I use my computer for more things than just substance and I would very much like to choose when I start a program and when not. besides fixing this extremely poor (spyware like) software behaviour in the next update.

Could you please advise me where the hidden setting is to actually not have this program launch at windows startup?


You can stop it by typing CTRL + SHIFT + ESC or Start->Run and type taskmgr.

Go to your Task Manager and click Startup tab, then disable it.

I teach people how to use Substance Painter. :)
