 1.   Right Click your shortcut and add --connect "configfilename.ovpn" (The server info is indeed named 1.ovpn; and I am using auto authorization)
--connect "serverconfig.ovpn" after target exe


 2.   
For just a single user navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAMEHERE\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and move shortcut from step 1 to folder.
