This link should give you exactly what your looking for.  Except I would ignore recommendation #2, i wouldn't use freeware for this.

Copying a shortcut into the startup folder should work. It does with me. Maybe your software needs special elevated permissions?

Normally copying to program to the startup folder should do the trick.

On this specific workstation it didn't.

I used freeware (WinPatrol) to delay the startup of the software and now it starts up automaticly whenever Windows boots.

Thanks everyone for your support!
