I have an all in one windows 7 embedded computer.  i have a small vb.net app that will install and run on the embedded computer.  but once power is cycled the embedded computer seems to reset and no longer has my application installed.

What am i missing or what do i need to do to make sure my app stays installed once computer is rebooted?

Also would be nice to know how to have the app auto start to?

As with most embedded systems, you have to find out which security measures are in place keeping the system in its current state. Usually, you unlock this safety feature, install, enable security feature. It's not always a Windows feature per se, it could be one from the manufacturer (like with HP Thin clients, it's usually a part of HP's software suite).

Ok, this is what the website says:

Administrators have the ability to install any Windows applications and commit changes directly to the system partition using the Thinlabs EWF Manager.
