    How do I add a program to the boot menu?

    I want to add the OC module program to the start-up folder, but there is no option to add anything using msconfig.

    Sometimes I forget to start this up and then have to go through the hassle of minimizing everything to the desktop to start it.

    Anyone know how to do this?

    Create a shortcut of the program you want to start on the desktop. Rightclick the startup folder -> explore. Drag the shortcut from the desktop to the startup folder.

    Thanks, but that's not what I needed.

    I want this program to start automatically each time Windows boots.

    Try going into "regedit" (just type "regedit") via "Run..." and lookup the Autostart-part of it. Try googling it and I'm certain you will find it

    Use regedit and navigate to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    Add a new String value.
    Name=<You choose>
    Type=REGSZ
    Data=<Full path and exe name>

    Strange why the startup doesn't work for you?

    Hi Michael! Both Goldmember's and the regedit methods should work. Remember to be careful when fiddeling in the register though.

    Here's a link to an app called Fsuipc Run Options by Josť Oliveira: http://www.schiratti.com/files/dowso...RunOptions.zip

    This app let u automatically start programs when Fs is started. I've found it invaluable for starting apps running on my Fs pc.

    On the networked pc's WideFs has alot to offer when it comes to starting applications.
    You can start, delay a start and close programs etc. Very handy.

    My sim is configured so that i only start Fs and the all the five other computers launch their programs exact in the order i've configured them.

    Again kudos to P Dowson.

    You mean it did work in the end? Anyhow, here's it more visually:
