Hello All,
I am trying to install a small app in Windows7.
But in order to do this the app needs to be
directly copied to the startup folder.
Could you tell how to do this please.

Copy the executable file to C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

What Andrew said. I am adding my 2 cents here as well,
- Open Windows Explorer and copy paste the following in the address bar.
%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
- The Startup folder would open up. Copy paste your file in this folder.
