I suspect it is prevented so as to prevent malicious setup routines that are hard to put the brakes on.
It really should be left to the computer's owner as to whether he wants to run a program every time his computer is started.

If you put something into [u]my</u> Startup I'd be cursing you till the sun went down. (But that's just me...)

Create packeage with VSI and you can do anything you want. Not only
adding the shortcut to the startup but more than that.

Hope this helps.
