WD Discovery does not Start Automatically After Computer Restart


I have WD discover v4.3.336 installed on my laptop. Whenever I restart my PC, WD Discovery does not start automatically in background. A few months ago this functionality used to work properly but lately its not working. I know I can add the app shortcut in windows “shell:startup” directory so that it starts automatically. But using this way it appears on desktop during start up and not run silently in background like it used to be. Can someone help how can I make the app run in background silently and it does not automatically pop up during startup? Thanks.

Have you already checked the Knowledge Base?

I face the same issue. WD Discovery is started automatically with the option START, but does not start silently on new log in. Always asks for allowing installation.
Looks something during the install process is broken.
And … NO, did not find any hint in the knowledge base.
