mac os x installer - startup folder problem

I have 2008 standard version. according to the documentation, there is a magic folder $STARTUP$ for win/mac os "startup", which will put alias where it will automatically startup the application the alias points to. on the mac you can see automatically starting items in preferences:accounts:login items. This is not working for me. I can install the application, and start it manually in the terminal.
The automatic startup folder for items that are launched automatically during operating system boot up. This folder only resolves on Windows and Mac OS systems.

the solution is to use launchd by creating and installing a plist file in $unix-user-home$/Library/LaunchAgents, the plist file calls the script that starts the service.

InstallAnywhere settings for plist file - check override permissions, enter "644"
