Hello,

I am trying to have HWiNFO autostart on my standard user account, but it seems I’m having some trouble.

I’ve created a new task in Task Scheduler (just as the program recommends); however I receive the following error: "The requested operation requires elevation (0x800702E4)".

Autostart is enabled in HWiNFO and the following settings ARE ticked in the new task’s properties:

----------------------------------------------------

General:

Run only when user is logged on

Run with the highest privileges

Triggers:

Begin the task at logon

Specific User: "My Standard Account"

Delay task at 5 Seconds

Enabled

Actions:

Action: Start a program

Program/Script: "C:\Program Files\HWiNFO64\HWiNFO64.EXE"

Start in (optional): C:\Program Files\HWiNFO64\

Settings:

Allow task to be run on demand

If the running task does not end when requested, force it to

----------------------------------------------------

Any advice on fixing this issue?

Thanks in advance!

The “Run with the highest privileges” option is ticked in, both, the HWiNFO task and the new task I created for my standard user account. So far it’s still only autostarting when logged on as Administrator.

I'm not sure if a standard user account can automatically elevate the rights to Administrator.
