I cannot for the life of me get the Bitcoin Client to start up minimised.

I have a shortcut in 'Startup' with 'target' set as ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Bitcoin\bitcoin.exe" -min".

I have also created a 'bitcoin.conf' configuration file with "min=1" uncommented.

Neither works. The client launches OK at startup, but always in a regular window.

Ideas?

FYI... I'm using latest client (v0.3.24) and Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

On Windows shortcuts - right click - properties, there is a choice of Run: Minimized.

Doesn't that work?
