How can I make cx_Freeze to make the app created to start on windows startup? I can't find the answer to any questions like this.
As in start on startup, I mean when the computer boots, the program automatically starts. I also would like this to be done automatically in first use of the program.
You can use
win32 library to create a shortcut to your exe and place it in the startup folder.
from win32com.client import Dispatch import os dir = 'C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup' name = 'shortcut.lnk' path = os.path.join(dir, name) target = '<your exe>' wDir = '<working directory>' icon = '<file to take the icon from, can be your exe>' shell = Dispatch('WScript.Shell') shortcut = shell.CreateShortCut(path) shortcut.Targetpath = target shortcut.WorkingDirectory = wDir shortcut.IconLocation = icon shortcut.save()
