You can make an installer for it with the free InstallCreator software and then have it put a shortcut to the program in the start menu folder "Startup".

Otherwise manually drag the shortcut to this "Startup" folder.

Have two applications, autostart.exe and alarm.exe
autostart.exe when executed copies alarm.exe to satrtup (or autostart), you an retrive the path with the registry objecy.

For starting the app at a designated time, you can use Task Scheduler - included in Windows.

^^^ Of course, that would only be useful if he intends to use the program only for himself. I believe he's looking for a way to have his program autostart on other people's PC's.

Another way is to write a Registry key using Construct's registry option. There are several keys you can write to with the most common being:


Registry Keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run


Here is a big list of all the possible ways to auto start a program:
