Just Drag it into startup folder which is located in your start menu.
Not working? Add this to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run Through regedit.

You can simply make an entry in the windows register at:

And put a new value in something like:

Name : MyClass (or whatever you want to name it)
Value : "C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_04\bin\javaw.exe" -jar "c:\myproject\myclass.jar"

When you then reboot windows it will start.

Good luck!

You can indeed create a bat file with the command -> "C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_04\bin\javaw.exe" -jar "c:\myproject\myclass.jar"
And you can put that in the startup folder. Be aware that the startup folder is a user folder and when you right click on it and choose "explore" in the context menu you will see that it is not located in the windows folder but in "documents and settings" of the current user.
