Doesn't autostart on system launch

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug ACC doesn’t auto-launch when windows is booting up. I tried removing the app from the autostart list. Manually adding it to C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Launching the app normally / manually works fine.

It’s listed twice because one is the “default” one (having the option ticked in the app) and the second one is the app shortcut added to Programs/Startup

Hardware & software info (please complete the following information):

  • [Version of Windows] Version 1903 / Build 18362.657
  • [Version of AssistantComputerControl] 1.4.0

This might have something to do with the lack of administrator rights (also might not). This has been an issue for ACC many times before, so I’m making it require admin rights by default now. This will also make the software Startup-impact actually be measured.

I changed the way that the software checks if the software starts with Windows, not that this has something directly do to with this issue.

Sending the version here in a bit - you testing it would help a lot, as I’m not personally experiencing this issue myself, and have trouble trying to recreate it.

Sorry for the late reply, totally missed the github notification.

Installed the file from zip you attached, and sadly no change and behaviour. App still doesn’t auto-boot and the logs are basically empty.

I’d say its probably a Windows issue and a fresh re-install could solve it but its weird that its just this particular app that has issues with that.
