Do you really mean a specific COMPUTER or a specific USER?

If you mean COMPUTER, just put it in the computer's Startup program group. That's the easiest way.

If you mean USER, just create a .BAT file that runs the executable and put it on your PDC's c:\winnt\system32\repl\export\scripts directory. Then use the User Manager to assign a logon script for that user (specify the .BAT file you created).

It depends on how you want to set up the login script. If it is a user computer and you want to run login scripts, the best and cheapest way I can think of is Kixtart (its free). If you *must* have a policy based solution in poledit choose "add computer" specify the computer name. In system > run you can specify a program or batch file to run at startup.

Good Luck
