Hi Kay,
I'm confused, about Programs in the StartUp folder being started by a Windows service which is not hooked by SuRun, because I do have success with SuRun elevating a program (Secunia PSI) started from:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\ as a .lnk file (on a Windows 10 system).
Or, did you mean, instead of Startup (run as user upon user login) that it is start at System boot time programs which do not benefit from SuRun (which is as I'd expect)?


(Aside from all the above, before I forget, I notice that both WebRoot SecureAnywhere and AVG Antivirus are rather aggressive about not liking SuRun during installation; it's necessary to temporarily disable those two in order to successfully install SuRun. I don't recall it having been a problem in years past. I could see why they'd false-positive on SuRun. Perhaps you could reach out to them and get them to back off a bit?)

Hi Kay,
Thanks so much for looking in to this.

Maybe it's not the /options which are creating the challenge, but something peculiar about the Ninite Updater application itself?

Unfortunately, Ninite Updater https://ninite.com/updater/ is not available in a free trial.
My current Ninite Updater license will expire in about a month; I could give you a copy of that for testing, or I'll happily buy you a one-seat license to Ninite Updater (USD$9.99) if you'd like.

regards,
Jay

I'm sure I'm just doing something wrong, and I apologise in advance for my stupidity...

I had used SuRun sometime ago in version 1.2.0.9beta but just recently took it up again with 1.2.1.2, on a Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit system, a Domain member.

A program which, in the Start Menu, includes /options after the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Author\Program\Executable.exe", does not seem to be noticed by SuRun; the usual Windows UAC prompt still comes up. Programs which do not have /options in the Start Menu shortcuts/.lnk files, are recognised by SuRun and launch automatically with administrator rights correctly.

Specific example, Ninite Updater, the Start Menu .lnk shortcut is:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Ninite Updater\NiniteUpdater.exe" /updaterclient /stub:trayapp

If that exact path is in my user's StartUp folder (to start automatically when the user logs in), SuRun notices it and starts it automatically as administrator.
But if I tap the Windows/Start key, type "Ninite" and click on the Start Menu item which Windows Search finds on the computer (which is that exact same path), then Windows UAC pops up, not SuRun.

What am I doing wrong? / What is the correct way to teach SuRun about a program which is started from a Start Menu Shortcut/.lnk which has /options at the end?

thanks,
-Jay
