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.
