I am trying to get the Object Explorer in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 2005 to automatically connect to a server on startup.
I have been able to get a query window to connect using the startup options:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Binn\VSShell\Common7\IDE\SqlWb.exe"  -nosplash -S myServer -d myDatabase -U myUser -P myPassword
However, I am really looking to have the Object Explorer automatically connect.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
