# Windows – Problem starting a program in the startup folder at Windows startup

bootwindowswindows 7

I placed a shortcut to a program (with one parameter) in the startup folder. That program does not get started up upon Windows startup. The shortcut's target is something like:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\MyProgram\MyProgram.exe" -param


And the "Start in" is

"C:\Program Files (x86)\MyProgram\"


The program, when executed, would be run as Administrator.

Does anyone know what went wrong and how I could "debug" this?
