When I insert my T-Stick I get the usual Windows pop-up box asking me what I want to do with this device, etc. I also get the Telecom Connection Manager come up automatically. I click connect and it's all good.

With the Vodem, I get the Windows pop-up box, but I don't get any option to launch the Vodafone Mobile Connect application, nor does it load automatically. I need to double-click the shortcut I've created to load it.

Is it possible to set it up to load automatically? Seems like it could be relatively simple, but I'm not sure what to do to enable this to happen.

Windows Vista Home Premium. Both the tickboxes that would make it start automatically are ticked, but to no avail.
