Newer Windows systems will prompt you every time you launch Management Suite if you want to allow changes to be made by the software. There are two ways to stop this from happening. First you could lower the User Account Control settings to minimum, but shouldn't do this unless the PC is only used with the carillon and you understand the risks. The other method is to schedule the Management Suite to automatically launch when the PC is started.

This is an experimental workaround. You will need administrator credentials to set Windows to launch Management Suite this way.

Scheduling Management Suite to autostart

Creating a task in the scheduler, then re-directing the desktop icon to launch it is the best way to avoid these difficulties. It is also a good way to set the Management Suite to autostart when the computer boots (or reboots after updates).

  1. Hold the Windows key and press R. In the run command field type
taskschd.msc
  1. In the right pane of Task Scheduler, click Create Task
  2. On the General tab, provide the task name mgmtsuite (do not use spaces in the name). At the bottom of this tab, check Run with highest privileges
  3. Optional: if you want the Management Suite to start when the PC boots, select the Triggers tab. Click the New... button and select At log on
  4. On the Actions tab, click the New... button, select Start a program and [Browse] to the Management Suite icon on the desktop, or find the program in the Program Files folder. It will be in the Program Files (x86) directory on 64 bit operating systems. Click OK.
  5. On the Conditions tab, uncheck the power options if you ever need to run the Management Suite on battery power.
  6. Close the Task Scheduler
  7. Right click the desktop icon and select Properties, then edit the Target to:
schtasks.exe /Run /TN mgmtsuite
