edit (or create) autoexec.bat in c:\

Another way is to design the program as a windows service (windows services aren't normal programs) and add it to the service list using the appropriate CMD commands:

Or use a wrapper program such as srvany... <--- this is probably what you really want.

Why not just use the plain old Windows Task Scheduler?

What version Windows are you running?  I have successfully used the Task Scheduler on my Win 7 machine to run an app after I login.

Are you trying to get a VB.Net executable to run at login?

Or are you trying to programmatically from VB.Net, schedule a program?
