    You have 3 options
    1. Putting a shortcut in th startup path of each client
    2. You can make an entry at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run for each client.
    3. When you have a server which authenticates a user you can have batch file or something similar run.

    There are two ways to do that, one is that you add a entry to the registry and the other which is fairly simple, just create a shortcut of the program you intent to start automatically, and place it in X:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup where X is the drive where you OS i.e. Windows XP is installed.
