  • Updated 3 months ago
Upgraded last week to 2020 from 2019 running Win10 (Enterprise Build 1909). I am an Admin on the box but regardless of what I do Snagit isn't allowing me to save the "Run when Windows starts" setting - its throwing a message about needing to be an admin and if I am running Vista blah blah blah...

Right Click on the Snagit32.exe file - (C:\Program Files\TechSmith\Snagit.exe) and in the menu that pops up, click compatibility tab and near the bottom, check the box that Says "Run this program as administrator"

Your exe file's location may be different locale.

Where are you getting the "Run when Windows starts" from?

I have 2 PCs, each is win 10 v1903. Snagit 2019 won't auto start on PC#1, and Snagit 2020 won't auto start on PC#2.  I guess it's support ticket time, sorry.

This appears to be an issue with a lot of software, not just SnagIt.  It all seems to have begun with Win 10 Version 1903, and sure messed up products where Git was used for Version Control for example.

What I discovered was double annoying, was that the developer's own system was not fully up to date, hence they had not experienced the problem themselves.

I'm having the same problem. Windows 10 Enterprise version 1909 build 18363.720. Even though the checkbox to start Snagit when Windows starts (in the preferences), it doesn't. I see Timbain opened a ticket...can the results be shared?
