The installer I create automatically registers the software it installs to start when Windows starts.

How can I disable that ?

InstallBuilder does not register anything to start at boot time. Are you using actions such as <createWindowsService>, adding files to ${windows_folder_common_startup}, ${windows_folder_startup} folder or adding it to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run?

Perhaps starting your application for the first time or with specific flags causes it to register at system startup?

Does creating a sample project that only installs your application also cause this?
