Problem running batch files in startup Windows 8

We have a DOS batch file in our Windows 8 Startup folder (and in Startup Tab in Task Manager) that seems never to run when the PC starts up. How can we have a batch file running automatically in windows when the computer starts.



Task Scheduler.
Add basic task.
Trigger: When the computer starts
Start a program
Program/script: cmd
Add arguments: /c c:foldernamefilename.bat

Didn't know about this, thanx! Just finished creating and restarting the PC.



Didn't work and tried it twice. Checked if it created any event to see why it didn't, but nothing.



- Does the batch file access the network/domain? That could be a reason.

- Try temporarily replacing the .bat with a simple one. Just to see if it works. Maybe with a single line of code that writes text to a file:



It's a local PC, no LAN.

Will try with your example and see.
