When you have setup your Kodi media player on a PC you may have noticed that if you drag a shortcut to the start up menu Kodi doesn’t always load correctly and you are left staring at a black screen. The solution is to delay Kodi loading and allow other services on the computer time to fully load. Below is the bat file I use on windows 7 to delay Kodi loading for 45 seconds.
64 Bit Windows
@echo off cls timeout 45 cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Kodi" start kodi.exe
32 Bit Windows
@echo off cls timeout 45 cd "C:\Program Files\Kodi" start kodi.exe
Paste the script above in to Notepad and save as a bat file. Copy the bat file to your start menu startup folder and reboot. You can shorten the time from 45 seconds if you have a faster computer.
