Some programs only run at startup from the administrator account.

    App startup from Task Scheduler doesn't start on another user account.


    I find some programs startup is controlled by Task Scheduler rather than from the startup tab in Task Manager or from the app itself. I have a program Asus AI Suite that's startup with Windows appears to be controlled by Task Scheduler. The program always starts up in the administrators account where it was installed from but doesn't startup with another user account.

    If I want particular parts of this program to start up with Windows from another user account how do I do that? I presume somehow in Task Scheduler?

    Thanks for the reply.

    Changing the object name for a particular task shouldn't change that all of tasks should it? Because it appears some of the tasks I'm referring to are already set to run as 'users'.

    The triggers for those tasks (screenshot above) are already set to 'At log on of any user' also, yet the programs aren't launching at startup for this user account.

    As a test, the program Samsung Magician was set to run as admin only, I changed it to users as suggested above but it still doesn't startup in this particular account.

    I can't see what's wrong, some of these tasks were already set to run as 'users' with triggers 'at logon of any user' by default yet they aren't working...

    Edit: So I enabled history reports for the Samsung Magician task and it's creating task failed to launch errors 101 and 203.

    Keyword: 0x8000000000000001

    Result Code: 2147943140

    Edit: I'm guessing it might have something to do with these programs both (Magician and AI Suite) needing administrator privileges to run at startup?

    Tick the task to "Run with the highest privileges".

    Already ticked for those tasks...

    I'm guessing it's still a privilege issue but not sure what... I can try changing the 'configure for' option to Windows 10...
