CoreTemp autostart w/o UAC Prompt

Hello,

I installed CoreTemp, but the thing it doesn't autostart in a standard account by checking the option "Start with Windows" however I managed to auto-start it by creating a task in Task scheduler, but everytime it starts, our fellow Mr. UAC prompts up.

I've already tried the elevated shortcut option but it doesn't work.

So, has anyone manged to start it w/o the UAC prompt or if its simply impossible as of yet ?

Nope...I gave up searching for a solution and just punch in my PW once a day
All the dev has to do would be have that program (or part of it) run as a service...that should do it.
Come to think of it...I had a program that let you run another program as service under XP...let me see if I can find it and I let you know if that worked.

I tried it via sc.exe (which worked just fine under Xp) but I can't seem to get it to work.
The program will establish itself as a service, but it won't start and if I try to start it manually an Error pops up something like this:
"The Service failed to respond in a timely fashion"

it was worth a shot but i assume it's not meant to be

Hello Sledge,Found this on googling, a guy with similar issue regarding the service error which you got and some possible solutions too. Maybe if you could read this and see if the service starts. Using SC.exe for creating the service | pdfforge.org

Funny I never even thought about combining SC with srvany (especially since srvany isn't part of Windows 7 while sc is)
but I'll try and see if that works as expected.
Thanks...I'll report back later.

Sorry...didn't work either here's what I did:
#1 Download SrvAny.zip from here
SrvAny - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com
and unpack the SrvAny.exe to the directory of your choice (I didn't use \system32 on purpose
#2 start a commandline with admin rights and execute the command
sc create "Core_Temp" start= auto binPath= "C:\Program Files\Portables\SrvAny.exe"
(of course you need to use your own path there
If you get the following message you can continue, otherwise check the syntax... there are spaces after "=" !!
[sc] CreateService SUCCESS
Name:  Capture.JPG
Views: 40
Size:  29.8 KB
#3 Now start regedit as admin and navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Core_Temp
create a key underneath and call it Parameters
create a string inside Parameters and call it Application double click it and give it the path to your CoreTemp.exe

Just a word of caution: Even if it seems to work for now there is always a chance of having some kind of trouble later on. SrvAny.exe is not part of Windows 7 ....I guess only long term use really shows if that is potentially troublesome.
So if you don't have a recent backup, you're better off just punching in the password in the morning

Thanks Sledge for your efforts, but i don't feel comfortable w/ using some exe from unknown and untrusted source, I'll be better off w/ punching in the pass everytime.

That's exactly how I see it...There is always hope that the dev one day brings out a version that installs itself as a service ( I wander why he didn't do it yet since it makes perfect sense...a lot of gadgets rely on CoreTemp already)

I checked his page and found this
Why does Core Temp require administrator privileges to run?
Core Temp requires direct access to hardware to be able to read temperature and other processor information.
In Windows you can only access hardware using a kernel mode driver. Since Core Temp doesn't install anything permanent on your system, it loads the driver at run time, this task requires administrator rights to achieve.

I just hope he puts out an alternative version that installs itself

On his page it says that it should work with the newest version...i just updated and now I'll reboot to verify..
