OBS not showing interface when starting from task scheduler


New Member
Hi, i have the following situation:

If I open OBS from a normal command line, OBS will start as usual, with its GUI interface.

But if I schedule that same OBS start in a .bat file, run by task scheduler, it will open in "background mode?". It's only visible in the Windows Task Manager.

I'd like OBS to start in a common, interface showing way when opening it via task scheduler.

Do you know any way I can achieve this?

You have to configure the task as "Run only when user is logged on". Otherwise the task started by the scheduler will not get GPU/Desktop access.
