What komalo wrote is correct (it is not in the start menu).

For current user HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

For all users HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

I don't want to put the program in start menu . I want to run the program each time i turn on the pc (it's called scheduled task)

This does make the program run every time a user logs in. If you want it to run every time the computer is started you need to make it a service. Read through this its in there somewhere

Q11. How can I make my script start every time windows starts?

A1. You can use one of the following codes to allow your script to start with windows:

CODE: AutoIt

RegWrite("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run", "MyProgramName", "REG_SZ", @ScriptFullPath)

or

CODE: AutoIt

FileCreateShortcut(@ScriptFullPath, @StartupCommonDir & "\MyProgramName.lnk")

From the "for what it is worth" department...

Q11 is a bit misleading, but the FAQ was not written in legalese

"How can I make my script start every time windows starts?"

SoulA gave the answer (a service) that should work in most every case.

The other methods depend a human to log on or auto log on to "start windows".

Running your script as a service is also covered in that same FAQ:

Q4. How can I run my script as a service?
