Windows 7: Set a program into the All Programs Menu in Startup - need help

Set a program into the All Programs Menu in Startup - need help

Hello to all,
I had a problem getting a ,msi program to install for as yet unknown reasons having to due with it not having the previous version completely uninstalled. I was advised I could extract/unpack the files to a directory and just run the executable. Unable to accomplish this successfully, again for unknown reasons, a member of the Raw Therapee Open Source Software forum kindly unpacked the files into a directory and I downloaded it and cut and pasted it into the Program Files (x86). I pinned the executable to my taskbar in my user account. Is there a way to get the program and folder into the All Program group in the Startup Menu? As always thanks for any assistance!
Glenn

You can follow the steps 1) & 2) in this post.
Instead of creating a new folder,
you can place your folder in the Programs folder,
or, you can, of course create a folder of your choice if you want,
and places the necessary files in it.

Howdy Sweet,

If you give an application elevated privileges, it doesn't alter how it runs, but it does bypass UAC restrictions and can make your computer less secure.

However, if you keep a tight rein on things and know the origin of the application in question, you shouldn't encounter any problems.

Have a look at this tutorial, which describes the various ways you can run applications as an administrator.

Run as Administrator
