In that location, right-click on the Right pane window, New > String Value. Name this string to what you want, then right-click it, in the Value Date, just copy the whole directory to the executable you want to Run. That should do it.

Hi Freilheit59,

Perhaps it would be best if you explain the problem that you are having with the language bar?
- Is it not appearing?
- Are your selected languages not there?

The reason I ask this is because we need to know what result you want to achieve. If you aim is to make the windows language bar appear then the autostart registry entry is not the place for this.

The autostart entry is simply a link to a program. For example (and to keep this language related), I have an entry for the google pinyin converter as I prefer to use this when I type in Chinese. The entry is a string value as follows:
"C:\Program Files\Google\Google Pinyin 2\GooglePinyinDaemon.exe"

hi aem

I'm sorry, i forget to menchen which path I would like to add. It's ( ctfmon.exe ) which fixes the appearance problem of the language bar. I hopp that my request is clear now!

Best wishes

If you want ctfmon.exe to autostart.

Check my post above and make the string as follows
"%SystemRoot%\system32\ctfmon.exe"

Name the string ctfmon.exe

Good luck!

Ok, what happens when you actually double click that .exe. Does it appear? I tested that i posted for one of my program (an .exe) and it works.
