Whatpulse does not actually start on boot when told to

When administrator mode is on for whatpulse and it is told to start at boot, it will give a UAC prompt on boot, but not actually start up. You have to manually launch it again to get it to work.

Version 2.1.1 Windows

Same issue, version 2.2.1, Windows, although for me it works sporadically (~50% of the time, apparently random).

This is a Window issue, there are a few threads around (Search is in the top right) and this one contains a solution: http://whatpulse.org/forums/showthread.php?tid=3537

Thanks smitmartjn, but I already found and thoroughly examined that post before coming here, but I am running Windows 7 (and now Whatpulse 2.3, issue persists without change) so some of the tips given there aren’t applicable; what is applicable unfortunately did not make any difference in fixing the issue.
