Windows 8 presents some significant hurdles when it comes to running an app at startup. Especially with regards to User Account Settings. Rather than force anyone to run their system with UAC turned off, I've decided the better approach is to create a task to run Localizer at log on.
- Open Control Panel
- Open System and Security
- 3. Scroll down and click "Schedule Task"
- In the right-hand column titled "Actions", select "Create Basic Task"
- Give your task a name. "Localizer" is a pretty good one. Add a description if you want. Click Next.
- Select the "When I log on" radio button from the list and click next.
- Select "Start a Program" and click next.
- Browse to your Localizer installation folder
and select the localizer.exe file. Click next.
- C:\Program Files\Centrafuse\Localizer on x86
- C:\Program Files (x86)\Centrafuse\Localizer on x64
- Check the "Open properties dialog...." checkbox and click finish.
- In the "Security Options" section, select "Run only when user is logged on".
- Check the "Run with Highest privileges" checkbox, and click "OK"
Localizer will now start whenever you log into your tablet, regardless of the UAC settings. No registry modifications are made, so it's a much cleaner solution.
