hi,
you use the registry and put program under "run" key,you can do this in a setup/install program like so:

Uses Registry;

procedure RunOnStartup(
  sProgTitle,
  sCmdLine    : string;
  bRunOnce    : boolean );
var
  sKey : string;
  reg  : TRegIniFile;
begin
  if( bRunOnce )then
    sKey := 'Once'
  else
    sKey := '';

  reg := TRegIniFile.Create( '' );
  reg.RootKey := HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE;
  reg.WriteString(
    'Software\Microsoft'
    + '\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run'
    + sKey + #0,
    sProgTitle,
    sCmdLine );
  reg.Free;
end;


Usage:
sProgTitle
Name of your program. Generally speaking, this could be anything you want.
sCmdLine
This is the full path name to your executable program.
bRunOnce
Set this to True if you want to run your program just once. If this parameter
is False, your program will be executed every time Windows startsup.
Example:

RunOnStartup( 'Title of my program', 'MyProg.exe', False );

Grade it first, please. Your image at E-E can be misunderstood.

Being Lazy, but take Barry's example......


RunOnStartup( 'Title of my program', 'MyProg.exe', False );

Replace Myprog.exe for this

RunOnStartup( 'Title of my program',paramstr(0), False );

Your program works even if its run off a network, \\whaterver\c\

Its self automatic......
