    I have Vista as host and a Win98 guest (because there is one piece of
    software that I use that needs it).

    I've figured out how to have an icon on the host desktop that will launch
    the guest without having to go through the original virtualPC icon.

    But is there any way to automatically load the software I want when Win98
    boots up in the guest?

    In the guest, try putting a shortcut for the software you want to run in
    the "Startup" folder of the W98 Start bar.

  3. Place a shortcut to the program in your All Users/Programs/Startup folder in
