Posted by Jacob Fairbairn on 24 August 2013 08:47 PM

Windows 10/11

You can either run this script in Powershell as an admin, or open Task Scheduler and manually create the task with these parameters. Note for version past 10.3.50, the exe will be located at C:\Program Files\Savance\EIOBoard Kiosk\EIOBoardKioskPC.exe:

<# # # Add a Scheduled Task to run the Kiosk on startup # # #>

$A = New-ScheduledTaskAction -Execute "C:\Program Files (x86)\Savance\EIOBoard Kiosk\EIOBoardKioskPC.exe"

$T = New-ScheduledTaskTrigger -AtLogOn

$P = New-ScheduledTaskPrincipal -UserId $env:USERNAME -RunLevel Highest

$S = New-ScheduledTaskSettingsSet -StartWhenAvailable -ExecutionTimeLimit (New-TimeSpan -Days 3650)

$D = New-ScheduledTask -Action $A -Principal $P -Trigger $T -Settings $S `

Windows 8

  1. Open start, type run or press Windows Key +R 
  2. Type %appdata% and press Enter. This should take you to “C:\Users\<User-Name>\AppData\Roaming”.
  3. Navigate to “\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup”. The full path should now look something like: “C:\Users\<user-name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup”.
  4. You can now add any shortcuts you want to start when you start your computer.

If your EIOBoard Kiosk is not running on Start Up
  1. Open up the Registry
  2. Click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Policies>System
  3. Modify EnableLUA to DWORD 0x00000000
