    here i'm with my pc to try yr suggestions,and to ignore the bunch of smartass non in topic trolls ones..,
    the ONLY thing different from my task is the -configure for- in yr first picture tab general:
    here i've for win 10
    SO :
    i change my task as for yr picture suggestion
    and i take off the flag to the yr tool's settings to run at start up,
    as for another rare on topic past post suggestion from another serious member

    and the result is the up to now : IT WORKS....

    so crossing all my fingers with theese two changes now my
    win 10 home 64 bit vers 1607 anniv update is compatible with
    yr tool in its portable version

    thxs ONLY to you and to the ONLY other serious member

    cheers

    I'm surprised though that the regular "run on startup" checkbox in settings didn't work for you.

    Let me know if you run into more problems.

    hi dear W1zzard

    as i promised i post my results:

    disabling the task and put the flag on yr tool settings start up: - failed to create tray icon-

    then take off the flag of tool's settings and re activate the task scheduler: same error : - failed to create tray icon-

    then cancelling the task scheduler, put on the flag to yr tool's settings start up
    AND configure its compatibility for win 8
    AND not flagging run it as admin: IT WORKS

    what you think!?!

    thxs for yr kind cooperation and helping so precious!

    cheers

    update:

    nothing...if i close the pc the at re-start is the same error: failed to create tray icon...
    so every way i choose is the same...at first SEEMS to work but when i turn off the pc at the re start is the same NIGHTMARE..

    so there is something then when you close the pc interfere with yr tool's start up so when you turn on
    yr tool starts,and i see it workin in task, BUT it fails to crerate tray icon

    any ideas W1zz..??

    thxs in adv for yr kind patience

    cheers

    No. Portable version can be run off any folder, such as your Downloads folder, desktop folder/etc - wherever you choose to put the EXE file.
    Standard/installed app installs to C:\Program Files ((x86)) (with the (x86) for 64-bit Windows OS, without it on 32-bit).

    Was it? Does not really seem very solved to me.
    Something like "slightly pregnant", methinks. :D In this case - "moderately solved". :)

    While a mod did close the thread ( rightly so in my opinion )
    The Program Author who is Also the Site Owner and Chief ADMINISTRATOR chose to re open the thread ( as is his privilege and right).
    this was mentioned in a post i made earlier

    If you would read the thread instead of trying to be funny, you would see that in post #52, the OP came back and said he got it working, so the thread was closed. It was W1zzard who had reopened the thread, since it is his forum and his software, it continues to be that way until he is satisfied with rooting out the cause of the OPs issue to improve the software.

    here gaian to update for the owner of the tool my experience:
    NOTHING DONE of different in my pc and now at its starts,of the pc.., it works....,the tray icon tool..

    so to sum up:
    RANDOMLY it works
    RANDOMLY it starts at start up,or with its settings or in a proper task scheduler BUT with the error:
    - failed to create tray icon-...so you can only see the gpu-z.exe in task manager but you cannot open or see it..
    to do it you have to stop it in task and to re start the tool manually..at this point you can see it in tray area and open its window on the
    desktop....


    what you think W1zzz...?

    hoping to see yr replies ..!!
    thxs so much in advance

    cheers
