You are right,

Here is the code for you,

 Needs a reference to the project "Windows Script Host Object Model" WSHOM.OCX
Public Sub EnableStartup()
    Dim cPGM As String
    Dim oShell As IWshRuntimeLibrary.IWshShell, frmMsgBox As frmMessageBox
    On Error GoTo ErrEnablestartup
    Set oShell = New IWshRuntimeLibrary.IWshShell_Class
   
   
    cPGM$ = App.Path & "\pmsg.exe"
    oShell.RegWrite "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\PMSG", cPGM, "REG_SZ"
    Set oShell = Nothing
    Exit Sub
ErrEnablestartup:
    Dim strErr As String
    strErr = "Err no:" & Err.Number & " Err Desc:" & Err.Description & " Module:Global Proc:EnableStartup " & " Sts:Continue Process " & Date & " " & Time
    Call ErrorLog(strErr)
End Sub
