Hello,

How do I create a .msi package that will install the application so that it runs for any logged-in user? I tried to manually copy the files under Startup folder but it is different for every user. And are the steps same for XP and Vista?

Regards,
MI

I am not sure about Vista but in XP, if you put it in startup of AllUsers folder then it would start for all users.

See attached file. Set the InstallAllUsers to true. Add the User's Startup Folder and add shortcut to this folder. It would hopefully install it to all users startup.
