General tab



Minimize on Run

Click this check box so that RoboTask is minimized when you run the software.


Run on Windows Startup

Runs RoboTask as soon as Windows starts up.


Run As Administrator

This parameter is available only when the RoboTask is used in application mode in the operating systems using the UAC (User Access Control). That is in Windows Vista and the following versions.

If a user has the administrator’s rights on the given computer, the UAC, by default, demotes the rights of started applications in the session. Due to this, an error Access Denied is possible during some operations that demand entire rights. For example, when attempting to start or stop the system services, write down a value in a system register into the branch HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE, etc.  

Switch on this flag if you want the RoboTask to run with entire rights. In this case you have to confirm running the RoboTask manually when the UAC requests confirmation.


Close as Minimize

If this option is selected, when you click the X button on the main window caption, RoboTask will minimize. This is useful for preventing of casual closing of RoboTask.
