    Bypassing UAC on startup programs


    I have two programs that I am trying to get to run on startup. I have on e that is working, but the other brings up a UAC prompt and won't start. I tried to create an elevated shortcut via this tutorial, but the window just pops up and disappears during my testing. I really don't want to completely turn off UAC. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

    Right click on the executable and select Run as Administrator? See if that helps.
