Try using a shortcut to your exe file in the startup folder

Or put a delay at the top off your script
Or make another script and use the run command to start your other exe

Thanks for the reply!

Well, that is one of the methods that is not working.


As to the idea about a delay: well, so far I can see, my scripts never get executed at all, so I fear that won't work. That leaves the idea of trying to get something else, which launches my AHK programs, to run at boot. I think I'll try that! I do wonder what is causing the problem in the first place. EDIT: I think the cause is some problem with my Windows user profiles. Anyhoo, I'll report back on how the work around (start via another program) works.


Thanks again.
