I have been looking for a way to check the "add run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed" box during install. Obviously if I am there I do it myself. Perhaps a registry entry added to the .iss? I have not found a way to edit the task scheduler via the registry.

no. There isn't a way to edit a scheduled task like that I'm afraid, it must all be done programmatically via Task Scheduler API or manually. One of these days when I get around to updating dMaintenance in the future, that issue I believe has already been resolved with my newest schedule tasks code, at least on Vista+ -- still haven't figured a way to do it in XP yet though but I think I have a code sample on how to do it.

Sounds good. I will make a video tutorial to show clients how to make the change themselves in the meantime.
