Task Scheduler calling Program Compatibility Assistant for FreeCommanderXE (64-bit)

#1 Post by Free4all » 28.02.2019, 04:26

When running Sysinternal's Autoruns (https://docs.microsoft.com/sysinternals ... s/autoruns), I noticed a Task Scheduler entry for FreeCommanderXE 64-bit (on Windows 7).

The entry runs the Program Compatibility Assistant (pcalua.exe) as follows:
[drive]\windows\system32\pcalua.exe -a [path]\FreeCommander.exe -d [path]

Is FreeCommanderXE 64-bit supposed to require the Program Compatibility Assistant to run properly?

Do others have this entry?

Cannot confirm, so such entry.
By the way, there are no entries for Program Compatability Assistant whatsoever on my machine.

Thanks Odamn-Ete.

I see you checked on Windows 10. I left out an important detail, that I noticed this on Windows 7.

Can anyone check on Windows 7?
