After the last update from August there is no way to autorun an app through the registry in Windows 8.1. Do you have any idea how to overcome that limitation?

what do you mean with registry? Use the old Task Scheduler Trick which still works fine:

By saying to autorun through the registry I meant
HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run or HKLM\..\Run
I thought such an obvious thing doesn't need explaining.

Also I'm aware of the old TaskScheduler trick, but the side effect of that is a flash of a command prompt window which for a person with an OCD is not fully acceptable :)

I don't see a cmd. The normal Run entries still work for me and tool which require admin rights are always blocked since Vista.
