Figured i post this in case if anyone is interested in cleaner solution,
I was having same issue with voicemeteer, and above method isnt working,
so i googled a bit and i found this :

https://superuser.com/questions/1165081/how-to-run-a-program-on-log-on-of-any-user-in-windows-10

that solution starts voicemeteer right away, unlike my above method which i have to wait,
might work on rainmeter, but i havent tested it..

Hi guys,

Fixed it. What I did was to remove the "Run as Administrator" compatibility option. I also changed the permissions under the security tab. The two options I changed here were...

All Application Packages changed to full control, modify and write all turned on
Users changed to full control, modify and write turned on as well.

Not sure which of these allowed the program to start with windows again but something worked.

Confirmed to be working on Windows 10 Home Insider Preview version 1809 build 18305.1003. If it works for this is should work for all other builds.
