Description of Issue

The Launch at startup ain’t working. The account where the Roon Server is running in has to be loge in. For the launch at startup to work. I would like to launch without login needed of a user.

You are asking for Roon Server to run as a service in Windows. I’m afraid that does not appear to be on the roadmap of Roon Labs…

It doesn’t have to, (as far as I know)

I did attempt to start it with task planner. But it gives me a strange error could not find folder. What processes have to run to make the Roon server run?

Other option could be a autologin account. But I thought they ended the support (security risk) I will have a look.

Optional: I did chose to make a secondary account.
Brought back the removed future from netplwiz. Did a reboot
Set up the Netplwiz

Here is how to Get Auto-Login Back
removed with update Windows 10 20H2 and later
