Not unless you *explicitly* make it do so, e.g. by copying its shortcut into
the Startup folder, just like any other application...

Yes, but only if you've already started it first...!

In which case you're in luck, because that's exactly how VPC works! It's
just an application, like Word or Excel. If you don't launch it, it doesn't
start. I think you may be getting confused with Virtual Server, which runs
as a service and can be set to launch at startup just like any other Windows
