Is it possible to run a program after RAD Studio starts?

Where I work we log onto our computers with non-privileged accounts, then use "Run as Administrator" when necessary to do work that requires elevated privileges.  I use mapped network drives to access my Delphi projects, however, when I run RAD Studio as Administrator, there are no mapped drives.  I have written a program that will map the necessary drives and added it to the RAD Studio tools menu, so I can run that once Studio is up and running.  I would really like this step automated in some way.  A way to make the mappings persistent (which I have tried, but did not have success) would be the best solution.  Barring that, having a way to autorun my program after Studio is up would be acceptable.

Anyone have any ideas about how I could accomplish this?
