HWiNFO Won't AutoStart, Task Scheduler error 0x800702E4


New Member

I just recently installed HWiNFO, to monitor my PC, and I'd like to have it running on my Standard User Account, without having to use the Administrator password every single time.

I've created a new task in Task Scheduler (just as HWiNFO recommends); however, I receive the following error from the Last Run result: "The requested operation requires elevation (0x800702E4)".

The following settings ARE ticked, for the new task I made, in the properties panel:



Run only when user is logged on

Run with the highest privileges


Begin the task at logon

Specific User: "My Standard Account"

Delay task at 5 Seconds



Action: Start a program

Program/Script: "C:\Program Files\HWiNFO64\HWiNFO64.EXE"

Start in (optional): C:\Program Files\HWiNFO64\


Allow task to be run on demand

If the running task does not end when requested, force it to


Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance for helping me with this issue!
