    Task Scheduler won't start various programs on startup


    For example it starts SpeedFan without any problem, and with same settings, or even in the same Task, if I add for example other .exe software like FTP server software Gene6 FTP Server it simply doesn't start for any reason and nothing happens and it has to be started manually by mouse-clicking on .exe each time computer is booted up.
    On Last Run Result column it says 0x800702E4. And it gives various 0x results for various programs that don't run.

    Also simply dragging shortcuts to Startup folder don't work either. But like I said, not all .exe programs, some work and some don't, just like 50/50 I simply don't get it.

    I use Comodo Antivirus and ZoneAlarm firewall, but all those programs I need has 100% permissions granted.

    Hello Aylah,

    If these programs run elevated ("Run as administrator"), then you might see if using the tutorial below to create an elevated shortcut of the program, then placing that elevated shortcut in your startup folder may help. This will not work in a standard user account though.

    Hope this helps,
