I love Milestone XProtect. I manage a pretty large system at work, so I was excited to run the XProtect Go free software at home. The free version has some limitations, like 5 days of recording, up to 8 cameras, and the annoying part, a nag screen when launching the client.
For simple things like automating my way past the nag screen, I love AutoIT https://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit/
Here’s a video overview
In the Settings 1 set start mode 2 to full screen
Update the AutoIT script with your sever address, user, and password. Additional information is in the XProtect Smart Client manual page 165. When it works, right click and compile, then stick the executable in your startup folder and configure auto-login for your computer.
Run('"C:\Program Files\Milestone\XProtect Smart Client\Client.exe" -ServerAddress="http://192.168.1.199" -UserName "user" -Password "pass" -AuthenticationType Simple"')
WinWaitActive("Milestone XProtect Go")
