Hi @gaiflo ,

See the one of the previous thread related to the same issue: 

https://community.flexera.com/t5/InstallShield-Forum/Installed-Application-autostarts-on-target-computer/m-p/26389

And the helpnet link regarding the shortcut in the startup folder:

https://helpnet.flexerasoftware.com/installshield25helplib/helplibrary/IHelpMarsShortcuts.htm

Programs Menu and Startup

Basic MSI, DIM, InstallScript, InstallScript MSI, Merge Module, MSI Database, MSM Database, Transform

The Programs Menu and Startup folders are located on the Start menu. The Programs Menu folder is the industry-standard place for installing product shortcuts. The Startup folder should contain shortcuts to only those items that need to be launched whenever Windows starts.
