I need to start audio hijack pro as soon as I start my computer and want to automate that.
I need to do this because audio hj needs to open at least once after computer startup in order for the automation process within its program to function. I keep forgetting to open it and miss the automated recording I have set up.
I have an apple script saved as an application that will open audio hj. What I can't figure out is what program to use (ical or automator) to schedule it.
I am also newbie enough that I don't know how to program the automation even if I knew what program to use. I have tried with both and come up empty.
I also tried placing the script in the startup folder within the library. Didn't work.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

If you're using Tiger then ctrl+click the dock item and press "open at login".
