At first I thought you found my mistake:

The installer should elevate automatically, so not starting it with 'run as Administrator' should not make any difference.  It was just a suggestion, for just in case.
 
When I do "sc query rxapi" the response I get is:

SERVICE_NAME: rxapi
        TYPE               : 10  WIN32_OWN_PROCESS
        STATE              : 4  RUNNING
                                (STOPPABLE, NOT_PAUSABLE, IGNORES_SHUTDOWN)
        WIN32_EXIT_CODE    : 0  (0x0)

        SERVICE_EXIT_CODE  : 0  (0x0)
        CHECKPOINT         : 0x0
        WAIT_HINT          : 0x0

QUESTION:  Did I manually install RXAPI in an acceptable manner?


Looks okay.
 

I'm now running ooRexx 4.1.3 fine


Okay, great.
 

OH!  One last question:  Is it possible to have a Rexx program run before an user logs into Windows? 


it should be possible.
 

If yes, how? 


One way would be to set it up as a service, they may be other ways.  It has been many years since I fooled with it and I don't remember the details off the top of my head.  An Internet search should turn up some help.

There is an ooRexx user, Jeremy Nicoll, who runs Rexx programs on start up.  Maybe he'll answer here.

Otherwise, you could post the question on comp.lang.rexx and maybe he'll answer there.
