Hi Husam

The easiest way would be to put a shortcut to the application.exe file in
the 'C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup'
folder. You can make the setup do this automatically by right clicking 'File
System on Target Machine' in the project output window and selecting 'Add
Special Folder'. Just select 'User's Start Menu' and you are away.

The application will automatically terminate when you terminate the
operating system.

If you do it that way, will the app start with the OS or only when
someone logs on? I thought a Windows service was the only way to get
an app to start when the OS starts.

Chris,

It will start when someone logs on.

Philip.
