    I have been trying to create a shortcut in Win7 that will work with all users when placed in the all users program startup folder to start a program (REAL TEMP) whenever a user is logged in. I created a scheduled task as Administrator following the directions here:

    http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/wind...ortcuts-without-uac-prompts-in-windows-vista/

    Then I created a shortcut using the path C:\Windows\System32\schtasks /run /tn “RUN REAL TEMP”

    The task will manually run fine from the task scheduler but I cannot get the shortcut to work. When I click on it I get a quick flash of a window on the screen but the scheduled task doesn't run. I suspect an error in my shortcut location path

    Also when I get the shortcut working and place it in the all users programs startup I suspect it will not run under other users unless the permissions are changed. How do I do that so that so it will run under all users without UAC prompt

    You could install the WinRing0 driver via the service control manager and have it start automatically when you boot up then RealTemp or any other software that relies on the WinRing0 driver can run using just plain user privileges instead of Admin / UAC.

    You would probably also want to disable the manifest in RealTemp or other software which basically tells the OS that it needs Admin rights to run, since this is no longer true. If the author of the software is happy for you to do this then a decent resource editor could do the job.

    If you decide to do it this way then you will be responsible for the driver and updating / uninstalling it if necessary.

    Also be aware that while the driver is active, regardless of how it was started, it can be used / abused by any userland software.

    Thanks I think I will pass on the patches and just wait until the software is properly updated
