Hi dmitry1,

Just add a new value to the registry key 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Run' with a name for your application and the executable path. You can also use the RunOnce key if you want to let the app be started just the next time windows is restarted.

hope that helps,
