I need to start audio hijack pro as soon as I start my computer and want to automate that.

I need to do this because audio hj needs to open at least once after computer startup in order for the automation process within its program to function. I keep forgetting to open it and miss the automated recording I have set up.

I have an apple script saved as an application that will open audio hj. What I can't figure out is what program to use (ical or automator) to schedule it.

I am also newbie enough that I don't know how to program the automation even if I knew what program to use. I have tried with both and come up empty.

I also tried placing the script in the startup folder within the library. Didn't work.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Add AudioHiJack to the list and it will open up when you turn on the computer

If you're using Tiger then ctrl+click the dock item and press "open at login".
