Note: The SQL standard requires that writing just timestamp be equivalent to timestamp without time zone, and PostgreSQL honors that behavior. (Releases prior to 7.3 treated it as timestamp with time zone.) timestamptz is accepted as an abbreviation for timestamp with time zone; this is a PostgreSQL extension.

I have the following problem:
I want to launch a specific application through a program I developed (C# .NET/C++). Unfortunately, this program cannot be started through the usual ways like Process.Start, Shell, etc, because it refuses to be started automatically. I already tried to start a .lnk file or to do the whole thing via cmd, unfortunately the program always knows that it was not started by hand. I also tried to open it via the web browser, but even there it recognizes the difference between a manual and automated start.
I am now looking for a way to start a .lnk file (this contains the parameters), but just as if I double-click on it, so that this program does not realize that it was started automatically.
I don't want to use something like AutoHotkey because I want the program to work the same on every computer. Is there any way to disguise the call so that the program doesn't notice.
I would be very grateful for any help.
Programming language and way doesn't matter to me in principle, as long as I can integrate it into my C#/C++ project by a call.
I've spent many years with WinForms and have concluded learning UWP is long overdue. I'm doing OK so far, but the one thing I'm having trouble finding info about is the UI Element properties. Namely, the Brush, Layout, Appearance, Common, Automation, etc. properties you see in one form or another for all UI elements in the design view.
I realize this is not a very specific question and I did search, but found nothing.
What I'm looking for is some documentation/link describing in detail all of these properties and what they have in common to the UI Elements. Understanding is key to better programming.
Given more investigation since my original post, I understand what you're saying.
My general problem is that I never jumped on board the moment WPF came out, as Windows apps were never my true occupation. I've built numerous WinForms apps, some quite polished, for utility purposes and WinForms has served me quite well. I am now faced with "catching up" and painful as it is I feel confident I will eventually succeed.
To answer my own question, however, I've found an excellent video series on YouTube by Bob Tabor which presents a 70+ part series on UWP.
With 20+ applications on various production servers around the world, alright Asia, we wrote an application specifically to change the passwords every period. It could only be launched by a manager who's balls were held between 2 bricks. Getting the dammed thing out of source control was a bitch.
