Details

When Startup PN enounters a program on your startup list that requires elevated privilages to run, you get the following error:

File not found.

After clicking Continue, the loading screen will still show, but nothing happens.

The error occurs because but the code used to run it doesn't take in to account the fact that the program requires elevated privilages.

Steps to reproduce
  1. Add a program to your startup list that requires elevated privilages to run.
  2. Log out and back in again.
The error message should appear when StartupPN encounters the program.
Workaround 1Open the StartupPN main window. Select the name of the program that requires elevated privilages to run, and click Remove. At the prompt, click Yes. Close StartupPN.
Workaround 2 Hold down <Ctrl>, <Shift> and <Esc> keys and release them. When Task Manager appears, switch to the Processes tab, select StartupPN.exe and click End Process. When a dialog pops up, click the End Process button. A dialog should appear reading "Windows detected that this program did not run correctly". Click Close, switch to Task Manager and switch to the Applications tab. Click the New Task button, type StartupPN.exe /s 1 in the text box and click OK. Close Task Manager. Your startup programs should load normally.
StatusFIXED in v1.0 Build 020 Update 1.
