Create a shortcut for it, then copy/cut and paste the shortcut into the
startup folder.

Or.....

There are a few ways, but try this.

Put a shortcut icon on the Desktop. Grab the icon with the cursor and left
mouse key and without letting up, drag it to the Start Button, All Programs
and finally to the Startup program and let go.

That should do it. Reboot and check it.

Or.......

Add the path of the exe to the registry

HKLM->Software->Microsoft->Windows->Run

The easiest way to do this is simply to put a shortcut to each program
you want to start automatically in the Startup folder.

Thank you to all who posted. I knew it had something to do with
"Startup". It's working now.
