I was toying with the idea of setting up a task to launch the program using Brink's tutorial. But it seems like every time I try to use task scheduler something gets corrupted. I once copied the Vista Calendar program into W7 to have it open only when there was an appointment using task scheduler. It worked great for about 2 weeks. I had to keep refreshing the task file for some unknown reason. It's just a pita.
Yeah that is a sensitive part of Windows. A few years ago I had a spare HDD that I imaged my Win7 onto to test some of those "Optimization" software like IOBIT, Wise & Glary to see what they did and how long till something broke, and very often the Task Scheduler would be corrupted after about a week... then some service or another would bite the bullet being most depend on task scheduler to activate them(oddly never had a registry problem though).every time I try to use task scheduler something gets corrupted
I have a program, MinimServer that ran from the Startup folder when I first set it up, but since an uninstall/reinstall hasn't. MoveIt shows up in the sys tray like it's started, but the functionality in terms of hotkeys is not there w/o closing and running it manually.
WizMouse seems o work pretty well without running as admin. So for now I think I'll stick with a program to launch all my startups that need to run as admin. If the double click macro doesn't work I just hit it manually and it starts everything else.
You are welcome to use it if it is of any help. It's only a few lines. You would need to get AHK from here:
On my system I put all my shortcuts for startup run as admin in
You may change the script as you like.
Code:SendMode Input SetWorkingDir,%A_ScriptDir% Loop C:\Utils\StartAdmin\*.lnk Run %A_LoopFileLongPath%
Thanks, I'll take a look at it. As for now, I'm wearing out the scroll wheel on my mouse since installing MoveIt
Glad it's useful to you.
btw the script should be run as admin itself so it can launch the shortcuts with the same privilege level.
