Windows 7: One shortcut in Startup won't start when Windows 7 boots.

One shortcut in Startup won't start when Windows 7 boots.

The nonstarter is "NIS Time (32bit).exe", which sets my computer clock according to the government Internet time signal.

There must be something in Windows 7 preventing it from starting. It started fine when I was using Windows XP, and I've configured it the same way.

What's weird is that the shortcut in the Startup folder works fine if I doubleclick it. But it won't start on its own when Windows 7 boots.

"NIS Time" has a delay argument, which I've tried both ways: no delay and a one-minute delay. Neither booted at startup.

I tried using Task Scheduler instead of the Startup folder, but that didn't work either.

Hello Zarfs,

This is due to Windows 7 will not run an elevated (run as administrator) program at startup.

If you like, you could use the tutorial below as a workaround by creating an elevated shortcut that can be placed in your Startup folder instead.

Hope this helps,

Shawn,

Your suggestion solved the problem. We newbies would remain newbies forever if it weren't for people such as you.

Many, many thanks
