Override UAC prompt?


New Member
Is there a way to not have HWInfo32 ask for UAC Prompt on startup? I don't want to disable UAC but would like for it to auto start with Windows.

I have plenty of other apps that auto start yet they never ask for prompt.

I know there's ways to place it into the startup folder or something but wouldn't that not keep my settings, like starting minimized and only starting sensor?

This feature is in the TODO list. Currently you can do this manually if you disable the autostart feature in HWiNFO32/64 and create a scheduled task in Windows Vista/7 for HWiNFO32/64.
Thanks, I've done it via Task Scheduler.
I've ran into another problem though, now it starts immediately after I log in, before RTSS is turned on. What happens is that the OSD won't show unless I restart HWInfo32. I guess it needs RTSS to be open beforehand?

I've worked around it by delaying the start for 30 seconds.
Yep, it needs RTSS running prior HWiNFO32/64 sensors are activated.
Glad to hear that you solved it already with a delay.
