SpecialFolderPath

Here is a script I use for a project I am working on... I commented out
the part that sets the registry so that the progam runs automatically
upon computer startup. Even still, you would probably need to tweak it a
bit to work for your program.


On Mouseup

  put the filename of this stack into thisapp
  put the filename of this stack into thisfilespath
  replace "/" with "\" in thisapp
  --get
setregistry("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersio
n\Run\Newsautoload", thisapp)
  --put "Autoload" into field "Registry Status"
  --send savesettings to this stack
  
  create alias (specialfolderpath("start") & "/" & "CDC News
Autoload.lnk") to file (thisfilespath)
  create alias (specialfolderpath("desktop") & "/" & "CDC News
Autoload.lnk") to file (thisfilespath)
  
  get setRegistry("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.cna\","Autoload daily newsletter")
  get setRegistry("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Autoload daily
newsletter\DefaultIcon\",thisfilespath)
  get setRegistry("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Autoload daily
newsletter\shell\open\command\",thisfilespath)

end mouseup
