1. Click Start>Programs, then right click on Startup folder and choose Open.
2. On the Startup window, go to File menu and choose New>Shortcut.
3. In the dialog box click the Browse button to specify the Task Manager program, it's by default at C:\windows\system32\taskmgr.exe (Where C is the partition that your windows XP is installed on).
4. After specifying the program path, click next and finish. Then you will see a new shortcut (computer icon) in the Startup folder.
5. Right click on that shortcut and choose Properties, select Minimized from the Run combo box, and click Ok, then close the Startup folder.
6. At the next time you start your computer the program will run automatically and you will see it in the system tray.
i imagine it to be similar with vista/win7
on a Mac...i havn't a clue. Although i'm sure it's only a google away
I mean from the installer or from inside the program - actionscript 3 code.
I'm sceptical to if that's even possible, as that would have massive security risks.
Essentially what you'd have to do is add your app to the key
within your registry.
so your best bet would be to look around and see if Actionscript can mess around with the registry, which i don't think it can due to the hugeeeeeee security implications it would create...i may be wrong though.
I know it's possible in C/C++ though.
might be worth having a look at, it does say
Note: The application does not launch when the computer system starts. It launches when the user logs in.
but it might give you some answers
Thanks a lot, that link is exactly what I wanted!
