I start HS3 with windows task scheduler, the speak client doesn't come up (or maybe it does in the background but I'm not seeing it)

This has never bothered me since I didn't use the speaker client on the PC itself. Just wanted to know why/what in case I should ever need it.

I made sure the Speaker client isn't running in my task manager and launch it, no problem launching but it doesn't product any audio. Why is this? What can be done to remedy this?
