Windows 7: Scheduled tasks are hidden when I log back in

Scheduled tasks are hidden when I log back in

Ok, so I want to I want to set up a scheduled task that will run while I am away from my PC and have the desktop locked, and have the program be visible an interactive when I return to the PC and unlock the desktop.

The task is triggering properly and running the program. However, when I unlock the desktop, the program is nowhere to be visibly found. If I launch task manager, I see that it is indeed running, and it's listed as being ran by my username, yet it's hidden from my session.

Anyone know the remedy for this, such that I can unlock the desktop and the app will be visible and interactive, as if I had manually launched it myself?

If it helps, here's a screenshot of all the scheduled task's settings. It's a home PC, no domain, Ultimate, and I (David) am a local admin. Thanks in advance.

EDIT: For the heck of it, I tried to schedule a batch file instead, and the bat file would launch the program. But I got the same result as above. I repeated this test making an AutoIT script that would launch the desired program... again, it's running, but not in my interactive session. Frustrating.
