Creating an Elevated Program Shortcut for Search Everything Program.

I`ve done this successfully for SpeedFan, but I`m having a problem with doing the same for the Search Everything program.

I`ve been through the tutorial steps several times now, the task executes successfully,( I checked it with command prompt box) but nothing happens.

Code:
/c start "SpeedFan" "C:\Program Files (x86)\SpeedFan\SpeedFan.exe"
   
/c start "Everything" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Everything\Everything.exe"

You can better just right click C:\Program Files (x86)\Everything\Everything.exe. Then properties->compatibility->check "run as administrator"

I had a dupe (backup) install on a spare hard drive, when I re-did all the steps on that it worked!
(Did`nt need to change the properties to "run as adminstrator")

I suspect some sort of odd permissions problem was stopping it the program from running even though the task manager was saying it was successful.
