Windows 98 startup programs preceding to login

Hello

I need to connect to Win98 computer via Dameware remote control in order to log on it, but could I can't do that before Dameware Agent is loaded.

How can I make a startup application to be launched before login window pops up?

Thank you

What do you mean by login window?? Windows Logon?? You could add it to startmenu in startup folder or place an entry in registry under:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\run

Yes I mean Windows logon of Win98.
(I know, putting a shortcut to Startup menu item is not a solution)

I'll check it (registry entry) and let you know how it works.

It sounds like you have dameware loading in current user as opposed to local machine.  This must be placed into the registry under the local machine as kcarrim has listed above, this will cure your problem.

Well, I checked it , putting the necessary entry in registry under the key noted above.
It didn't help - the system load the Agent only after Logon, while I need that to be done
before logon, like a pre-start service in NT type systems... And then, I tried to put it under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
and it worked WONDERFUL !

If this site would allow to give 1/2 or 2/3 of assigned points I'd give it, but as soon as kcarrim's comment has given me a right direction , I'm awarding him anyway:-)
