For example:

var
  Reg: TRegistry;
begin
  Reg := TRegistry.Create;
  try
    Reg.RootKey := HKEY_CURRENT_USER;
    if Reg.OpenKey('\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce', True)
    then Reg.WriteString('MyApp','"' + ParamStr(0) + '"');
  finally
    Reg.CloseKey;
    Reg.Free;
  end;
end;
