To start tasks processing, the Convert Agent Manager application should be launched. Go to Start > Cinegy > Convert Agent Manager if a hardware dongle and/or license is available.

If no hardware dongle or license is available, please launch Convert Agent Manager Demo instead.


Once Cinegy Convert Agent Manager is launched, its icon appears in the taskbar notification area. To open the Cinegy Convert Agent Manager window or exit the application, right-click the icon in the taskbar and select the "Show Dashboard" command:

The "Show Dashboard" command also brings the window to front in case it is already open but is behind other windows.

You can enable automatic launch of Cinegy Convert Agent Manager on the operating system start by selecting the "Run on startup" command.

Automatic Logon

In order to automatically launch Cinegy Convert Agent Manager after the PC restart, it is necessary to set up the automatic logon for your operating system.

If you are a domain user, you can set your operating system to automatically log on the selected user account by configuring the registry settings.

Follow these steps:

  • Use the Win+R keyboard keys and enter regedit, then press "OK".

  • Navigate to the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

  • Double-click the DefaultUserName entry, enter the user name to log on with, then press "OK".

    If this entry does not exist, create a new String Value (REG_SZ) with the "DefaultUserName".

  • Double-click the DefaultPassword entry, enter the password for the user account under the value data box, and then press "OK".

    If this entry does not exist, create a new String Value (REG_SZ) with the "DefaultPassword".

    If no DefaultPassword string is specified, Windows automatically changes the value of the AutoAdminLogon registry key from 1 (true) to 0 (false) to turn off the AutoAdminLogon feature.
  • DefaultDomainName has to be specified as well. To do this, double-click DefaultDomainName and enter the domain name of the user account.

    If this entry does not exist, create a new String Value (REG_SZ) with the "DefaultDomainName" name.

  • Double-click the AutoAdminLogon entry, enter 1 in the Value Data box, and then press "OK".

    If there is no AutoAdminLogon entry, create a new String Value (REG_SZ) with the "AutoAdminLogon" name.

  • If exists, delete the AutoLogonCount key.

  • Close Registry Editor and restart the computer.

This procedure works for Windows 10, Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019.
