I have been using a RAM disk for couple of days now because of some silly application that insists on updating a file once a minute (with no relevant information). Works just fine...
After playing with it a bit more, I discovered the Auto Run feature. This is definitely a good idea but it needs at least two improvements:
1) the ability to add a working directory
2) an option to start the application minimized
As an alternative, the ability to use a link which would contain this information.
Then I guess you can simply create a shortcut (*.lnk) file, set the required parameters and enter its name instead. The RAM Disk won't let you add a file name with .lnk, but you can specify it by editing a line.
However, in the case of my application, the directory is set correctly but it crashes every time it gets started by the RAM Disk Manager. I tried a few variations, different directory for the LNK file but no difference.
For now I'll put it back into the Startup folder, where it was working just fine with the RAM disk, since it gets created at boot time.
Like I said, I was just playing with it since it's new...
