thanks for the reply!
hmm is this a Windows 8.1 limitation?
(because the guide on the first post mentioned it could be avoided :/)

but thanks really! glad I didn't have to disable UAC

Yeah, running the shortcut minimized doesn't seem to work anymore to stop the command prompt flash.

Oh My God, thank you thank you sooooo much, have been having so much difficulty with this, was trying to create a schedule where a system restore point is create upon logging on / at start up, without prompting the UAC, this has helped so much.

Hi,

I'm having trouble getting a programme called blue iris to start automatically at start-up but when I carry out post instructions and restart, command prompt flashes up and disappears but ten nothing. I am using windows 7 home premium and it says administrator account in control panel - could it be that I don't have a password set on the account?

Hello Rincal,

Yes, the administrator account will need to be password protected.

Double check in Control Panel -> User Accounts to see if it password protected.

Password - Create for a User Account

Created a password for account but still same thing, command prompt quickly flashes on and off then nothing.

I can start program from original shortcut without problem but when I try to start from created short cut the same thing as above.

I've gone through it many time - Any ideas?

Try this: In scheduled task, change the start of the value for Add arguments (optional) from /c to /k
Then the command prompt won't flash but stay visible. If something is wrong with that argument hopefully you'll now be able to see the error message.

I managed to sort it.

I noticed that when I had the task selected in scheduler a clicked the run button in bottom right window, the command prompt flashed and this time the programme started - I knew that the task was ok so had to be problem with the shortcut. I believe that my error was not putting quotes in the first part of shortcut creation. any way all working ok.

thanks Brink for creating post/help and thanks Tookeri.
