Default Adding files to startup folder

I've just written a vbs file on a win. 98 laptop and I want to add it to the startup folder so that it appears when someone logs on. How can I do this?

thanks

Default Re: Adding files to startup folder

Move it to

c:\windows\profiles\[username]\start menu\programs\startup...

(i think thats the right path at least...)

or ust right click on the start button and press explore.

go up a level from your username and put it in the all users\start menu\programs\startup folder.


If there is no all users folder (I can't remember).
you might want to consider putting it as a key in the registry..

HKEY_Local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\curr ent version\run\
then create a new string called VBS with the data pointing to the path of the VBS file.

Ahhhh
Thanks. I looked there but since there wasn't anything else in there I thought it must be the wrong place. >_>
