    Corsasri macrumors newbie

    Hello I'm new to the mac and new here and here goes my first question. I have a Mac mini running sierra. Now my girlfriend and I have a separate account and both need to login to the mac. But what I want to know is how do you do this if it can even be done.
    I need to load up a app before ether of us Log into the mac. As I want it to launch mobile mouse remote server. So I can use the iPad as a keyboard. So I don't need a mouse or keyboard connected my cables to the mac.

    Hope it all makes sense!!!!!

    Guess it didn't - no responses yet, but thread is still "fresh".

    You have separate accounts where? User accounts on this Mac? App Store accounts? At Debenhams? ;)

    Check with the developer of that "mobile mouse remote server", if it can load as a "Kernel Extension" should be fine. If not, then you will probably need to log in using a normal keyboard, then you can use the iPad once signed in.

    There are ways to launch specific programs even before a user logs in. If you can give us more information about the program you are using, then we can try to help you out.

    system preferences -> users groups
    you can set up 2 user accounts both as admin, easy to do
    each user account has a separate iCloud account
    each user account has a separate "Login Items" list

    To launch an app during the LoginWindow stage (which is where you end up on startup without logging in), you pretty much have to write a LaunchAgent configuration file with the LimitLoadToSessionType key set to LoginWindow.
