    Hi Jason

    I just started getting into Programing and minor hacking on Open Source Programs.

    There is one application in particular that I'm working on.

    I was wondering how do you program software to start up on start up.

    Would i have to hack the .INI file or would i have to add the start up to a note pad and rename it .reg execute it to add to the registry pointing to the exe start up.

    The program in question comes in a folder puts no registry entry's in to the PC.

    It is just turn on by executing the exe program in its folder.

    The original Programmer forgot to add start feature at windows start up .

    Well there is a few ways :-

    Registry - Create a string value containing the path to the EXE in this registry folder - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\

    Or create a shortcut to the Exe under your start menu -> programs -> startup folder.

    If you take a look at codeproject.com or do a google search you will find more info I am sure. :)
