I have a vendor msi, and created a transforms. After the install i see it has added itself to startup folder. 
No registries and cant see from the files. Must be one of the custom actions. I have a few that are calling dll's
Any way to find what adds from the msi or just reading the log?
Thank you.

Found it from the log. Was writing in a shortcut table.

Good job on the self answer.

Shortcuts 'should' be created using the Shortcut table. its only a 'file' to us mortals.

However, if an application launches at startup and there is no shortcut visible, then it is most likely in the Run Key (registry), also bear in mind there is HKLM RUN and HKCU.

also, there might be the service option, but that is quite unlikely.
