    program does not startup (logon) from registry path but...


    A program provided preinstalled by my laptop manufacturer is supposed to start at logon (but does not) from registry path
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    such entry being made by the program install

    Since the program does not start and sit in the system tray as it is supposed to I changed its registry start up to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    Now it starts up perfectly. It also starts by placing a shortcut for it in startup and by task scheduler and of course manually

    My question is to ask knowledgeable persons at this forum why this may happen at all and for any work around just in case

    Thanks

    You can avoid editing the registry by using my free RunIt utility to start any shortcut using the registry Run key. I have no idea why the setting was lost from the registry.
