tommym121 used Ask the Experts™
I am trying to find out a task that automatically starts an application when a user login to the computer running Windows Server 2012 R.
But I do not where it is located.  With the Event Viewer, will we be able to find out how/where the task start from?

Task Scheduler. Open Task Scheduler review like startups (lots of variables), make your own startup task and set it like the others.

See if that helps. That is what I have done.
Run msconfig and check the startup tab.

Check the registry for RunOnce, RunServices, RunServicesOnce, and Winlogon\Userinit in

Check for Run, RunOnce, RunServices, RunServicesOnce, and Windows in

Check the following locations:
Windows r   shell:startup -> C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp
Windows r shell:common startup -> C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
