Perhaps adding a shortcut to the Startup folder (on Windows)?

Or, do you want your app to start on windows startup automaticly on any computer it is installed on?

I guess you need to pack your app in an installer and let the installer create an autostart entry for your app. I can't think of any other way to manage this.

Search Google for install creators, and you will find such things as InstallForge, which will create an installation package. It's during the creation that you can usually tell it to either add itself to Startup, or create a Registry setting to autostart on Computer start.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
