How to execute my program after logged in WIN2K?

I have a program supposed to be run/execute once when WIN2K started up (after logged in WIN2K).  Is there any method to do? (except placing it in the startup of start menu?

You could also add it to the registry:

With regedit

goto

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Add a new string value on the right side panel

Give it the name you want. Ex: "Myprog At Startup"

double click an the new string

Type the path of the program you want to start.

If you go start, settings, control panel, scheduled tasks, add scheduled task, click next, click the program you want to start. Click "each time your computer starts" Then add the user and password of that user you want the task to run for. Click finish

Corvax is right but only if you want the program to run on every logon.

If I understand you, you want it to run only once, so follow Corvax instructions but do it in:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

the run once key is for a one time deal, once the program is executed, the regestry key is deleted.  The Run key will start the program at every logon, for every user.
