I downloaded a program one time that was a trial version and it had it setup so that after the trial period was over, every time I started up windows, it would display a message box that I had to click "OK" for windows to continue setting up. I was wondering how I would do that. Not the part about making it happen after a certain amount of time, just making it part of the regular operation of the program.

The ''proper'' win32 way of doing it would be to add an entry to a registry key.

If you want it to run for all users, the key is:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

If you want it to run for a single user, the key is:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
