terrypin Posted April 18, 2017 Report Share Posted April 18, 2017 I'm exploring the way ME Pro starts at Win 10 boot up time. I have this entry in the Startup folder:C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp\MeProc.exe Without that, ME Pro does not start automatically. But I also found an entry in Task Scheduler, one I vaguely recall creating last summer, soon after installing this PC. I suspect incorrectly. Name: Macro Express Admin. Triggers tab: At log on of any user. General tab: Run only when user is logged on. Run with highest privileges. Actions tab: Start a program%windir%\System32\cmd.exe /c start "Macro Express Admin" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Macro Express Pro\meproc.exe" Q1: Why isn't this Task Scheduler entry sufficient - IOW, why do I need the entry in the Startup folder? Q2: How do other users handle startup? (Regardless of OS version). Q3: All other executables in my Task Scheduler are in the familiar form (like the one in my Startup folder), so why is this one is so different, i.e. via cmd.exe? (But Right-click > Run does successfully start ME Pro.) Q4: How do I avoid the message "Let this program make changes...") ?
