Force application focus when started from startup folder

I have a need to have an application started from the startup folder in windows and the application has to have focus when the computer is done loading.  Is there any way to force this?

Thanks

If you manually navigate to & run Start Menu>Programs>Startup>appname.exe does it have focus?

It will have focus if I manually run it.  I think that the startup folder processes and something else loads at the end and takes focus from the application.

Lee - I see that you had the Accepted Answer in the link I posted - so you of all people would know if it's worth points here (plus the asker would know by now I would imagine).

My logic is that if it's an answer on another post it should be an answer on this post. Please feel free to explain otherwise.
