Add a shortcut for the program in your Start -> Programs -> Startup
group. msconfig cannot be used to add startup entries, only to list
them and try to disable them, but they must already exist for it do
anything with them.

RE: Adding program to msconfig startup
Actually you'd want to run services.msc
Go to run,type:services.msc Locate the program or service,double click
on it,then select "auto start" close out msc.

Re: Adding program to msconfig startup
????

Please provide a walkthrough of how to do that with, say, MS Word.

But of course, you won't answer; you never do.

And how do YOU know that what the OP wants to start on Windows startup
(or perhaps on account login) has anything to do with a service? So
far, all we know is that the OP is using the *wrong* utility to define a
startup item. We don't know if the OP wants to add a Startup group
item, a Run key item, a WinLogon item, a login script, a scheduled task
configured to run on login, or a service. However, considering the OP's
question, it's pretty obvious that the OP hasn't a clue how to prep a
program that someone else wrote to run as a service.
