I have been working for 2 days trying to get a program to launch at startup on my recent Windows 10 upgrade.. The program is Wallmaster Pro. an old program that I have used for many years. This program is an automated wallpaper changer. It runs just fine from the desktop but I cannot get it to run at startup I have tried the shortcut in the startup folder. I have tried the elevated task scheduler method. I have tried the edit the registry method. I also was unable to get this program to launch at startup in Windows 8.1. I would have given up long ago except that I have an old Gateway laptop that has been updated from Vista to 8 to 8.1 to Windows 10 and this same program has run at startup through all those upgrades of OSs and runs at startup from the startup folder on that machine in Windows 10. I have tried to duplicate the same conditions on the new machine. UAC settings are the same. Run as administrator is off on each. Compatibility mode is turned off on each . Both machines are running the latest Windows 10 with all updates installed. This is not a life or death problem but I hate to let this problem beat me. Is there a genius out there who can tell me what might be the difference?
