AutoIt Error

12 posts in this topic

At boot-up, I'm getting an AutoIt Error:

-- Line 701  (File "C:Users\...\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start\Menu\Programs\Startup\ActivateReminder.exe"):

Error: The requested action with this object has failed. --

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Neither.  I recently upgraded to Windows 10.  But I'd never heard of the program before.

Go into your startup folder in your Start menu and delete the file called ActvateReminder.exe

Edit: I just realized there is no folder called StartUp any longer in Windows 10 in the start menu, but the folder is still there in the user's profile folder.

Kingbob there is a startup folder i think:

Autostart for currently logged-on user:
shell:startup = %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
And startup folder all users:
shell:common startup = %programdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup 

if you want to go to the startup folder press win + r and type the below code
shell:start menu = start menu in Windows-10
shell:common start menu =All user start menu in Windows-10

I corrected myself 48 minutes ago, I said there's no startup folder in the START MENU, I didn't say there was no startup folder in the user's profile directory in fact I made a point of saying that it is where you would find it.

Surya:

I cannot find the program listed among those under Settings\Systems\Apps & Features.  I also could find neither the EXE noted in the error nor any program called AutoIt with a search in File Explorer.  How would I reinstall the program?  Is it a web-based installation?

Thanks for all your help.

You need to open the folder that the error message is telling you, "C:Users\...\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start\Menu\Programs\Startup\", then delete the file ActivateReminder.exe, reboot the computer. Don't go anywhere else on the computer until you have done that.
