    Auto launch an application at windows 8 32 bit startup


    Hello All,
    I have a problem in windows 8 32 bit to auto lunch my application at boot up/start up.
    Actually I already created registry in:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]

    and

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]

    while I am also created registry in:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\Run]

    but every it is failed to launch my application at windows start up, in 64 bit version it works well after creating registry in wow6432node.

    Please help me.

    Thanks

    Why not just use the task scheduler?

    Thanks for tipping me off to the wow6432node folder in the registry. I had been unsuccessful in all other attempts (excluding task scheduler). I noticed there are others with the same problem.
