    I have been trying to create a shortcut that will work with all users when placed in the all users program startup folder to start a program (REAL TEMP) whenever a user is logged in. I created a scheduled task as Administrator following the directions here:

    Create Administrator Mode Shortcuts Without UAC Prompts in Windows 7 or Vista :: the How-To Geek

    Then I created a shortcut using the path C:\Windows\System32\schtasks /run /tn “RUN REAL TEMPâ€Â￾

    The task will run fine from the task scheduler but I cannot get shortcut to work. When I click on it I get a quick flash of a window on the screen but the scheduled task doesn't run. I suspect an error in my command line

    Also when get the shortcut working and place it in the all users programs startup I suspect it will not run under other users unless the permissions are changed. How do I do that so that it will run under all users without UAC prompt

    C:\Windows\System32\schtasks /run /tn “RUN REAL TEMPâ€Â￾

    You missed a quotation in front of the C

    No joy there either; it won't accept quotes in front of C

    Try removing the quotation at the end of the script.

    Nope that didn't help but thanks anyway, It's got to be something simple like that though.
