As suspected it wasn't a WhatPulse issue, but a Windows 8 permissions error.

It's a well hidden option buried deep within windows settings.
I fixed it using this method.
Code:
In control panel, goto "local security policy" > "local policies" > "security options" and [u]disable[/u] "User Account Control: run all administrators in admin approval mode"

Upon shutdown and reboot, finally WP starts automatically once Desktop is loaded.

I know this is a super old post, but thanks for this tip! I was fighting with this for weeks and couldn't figure out why it wouldn't launch at boot. This still works for Windows 10.

I'm not seeing any of those settings options other than UAC, which doesn't contain the option to run all administrators in admin approval mode
