How to make an app launch at login when there's no dock icon? (and no such prefs)

    I have an app that I'd like to launch at login.
    It's a low-resources menu bar app called 'I love stars' which lets you set the rating (even half-star ratings) for the iTunes track playing at the moment, right in the menu bar. When iTunes isn't playing, it disappears from the menu bar as well.

    The problem is .. this app doesn't have a dock icon, nor any preferences that allow me to launch it at login.

    Is there any other way to accomplish this?
    Thanks in advance!

    System Preferences - Accounts - Login Items - +

    Then navigate to the application and then it should launch when you login.

    Have you tried adding it to:

    System Preferences - Accounts - Login items?
