Thanks for the help guys.
I too finally got the setup that I wanted to work... well almost.
I can auto load HDL8b and even made my own HDL8b with the settings/options I wanted (lock down HDL menu for children/others). The only problems that I see now is to configure the APPINFO.PBT to load it from the CC 2.0 SLE. (If that is needed) and secondly when I do run HDL it ask me to choose from three 'modes' for it to run in. That is the problem. I want it to autorun from BM ...which it does(from MC right now)... but I still need to select a HDL 'mode' and that defeats the autoload into HDL with no user intervention that I am looking for. Could it be the settings that I chose when I built my custom version of HDL?
