Windows Run/RunOnce Registry key
« on: March 29, 2018, 09:55:37 am »
(Windows 10 enterprise x64)

I have found that making the RunOnce registry key open the program on startup works (once as the key suggests), but the Run key doesn't work at all. Which is a slight problem because I would like to have it run with the key every startup.

As a side note, I have tried other programs such as the calculator with the Run key and those work.

I would like to know if this is a known problem.

Thank you.

It isn't really needed to run every time you start but if you like follow this:
Press the “Win + R” key combination;
 Enter: “shell:Startup” , without quotes in the boox and click enter. The start up folder will open.

Open a new exploer window and go to C:\Program Files (x86)\\Windows Repair (All in One) and right click on Repair_Windows.exe -- choose copy.

Then go back to the start up folder and right click to "paste shortcut"/ On the nex t boot it will start.
