What I do is disable the need for an administrator name and password 
thus bypassing the login prompt upon startup.
In Windows 2000, you can find it under Start, Control Panel, Users 
and Passwords, and ensure that the checkbox for "Users must enter a 
user name and password to use this computer" is unchecked.  Realize, 
of course, that doing this means your PC is wide open to everyone who 
has physical access to it.  Also, make sure the screen saver is not 
password protected as it also interfered with proper operation.

With these changes, I got WinSDR (in the startup list) working.  And 
it runs maximized upon cold boot up.

This is the only way I found to get WinSDR to run upon cold boot in 
Windows 2000.  If there are other ways, I'd like to hear them.

Good luck,
