Pokeys always failed to connect on the first power up after the cabinet was turned off.

Context- Custom Surface Grinder (Radius Grinder Profile). A lot of copied over data from previous machines.

Discrepancy- Every time the cabinet was powered down and back on, Mach would never enable and would have an error connecting to Pokeys. Closing Mach and then opening it again from the dashboard would always fix the issue. Closer inspection showed that the profile that opened upon start up was actually a Mill profile.

Reason- The Mill profile was the target position to launch on start up (likely a default forgotten to be changed.)

Fix- Change the start up designated profile in %APPDATA%

Keywords- connection, connecting, Pokeys fail, launch
