Startup settings disapear on closing "Startup and Tray Icon" window.
our user's experience, that the 'Auto-start with windows' option in the 'Startup and Tray Icon' window is blank again, after closing the 'Startup and Tray Icon' window, and reopening it. Also, HyperSnap is never added to the AutoStart folder of the user.
Our affected Systems:
Windows 10, 1709 (64bit)
HyperSnap 8.16.07 (64bit)
Users don't have local administrative permissions.
I used procmon.exe to trace the issue. If I select the option 'Auto-start with windows', HyperSnap doesn't seem to try to write a lnk-file to the user's startup folder (shell:startup). Even not, if the user is a local administrator.
If I select the option 'For all users on this computer', Hypersnap successfully writes a file: "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\HyperSnap 8.lnk".
But this requires administrative rights.
Our users have their startup folder redirected (Profile redirected folders) to a personal network drive, which is also using Offline Files for sync. Example for a user's shell:startup folder:
I tried to disconnect the drive and used 'Subst x: c:\users\public' for testing. But Hypersnap still didn't write the file.
According to procmon.exe, Hypersnap doesn't even try to write the lnk file.
I don't see any error message, nor a hint in the procmon trace. Any idea?
