Product .exe in system automatic startup set by .msi? Can't find the setting

After our product is installed, it is automatically added to the startup list in windows. I assume the msi file puts it in there and enables it. How do you stop it from being listed in the boot startup?

Dave,
Sorry I didn’t get back sooner. I have been away.
Just to be clear, when you say it is added to startup, do you mean that as soon as you log into windows it starts it up? Did this just start happening with 2024 or is has it always been present?

Dave,
After thinking about it, I remembered I ran into this before with another application. First look and see if a shortcut or file for your program is being added to “C:\Users%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup” when installed. If you find one there, then you just need to trace it back to where in the build process you are asking it to do that. You might check your Modules in the MakeWizard to see if you are copying a file to that folder. If you compile parts of your program using InstallShield or another program you may want to check that as well.

Shawn,

I think it first started with 2021.

I will double check the file structure and see if I see anything resembling what you’ve laid out.

Thanks.
