Start On Boot

Recommended Posts

Medic873

I have been working on this for a while how can I have my software start whenever the computer is booted. It is a fully background operation that will update my software. So I prefer that it doesn't mess with the user. But will run and check for a update on every boot. So how can I assign my software to a users computers regrestery.

RegWrite("HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run", "App Name", "App path")

Instead of the startup folder.

I would of posted that, but that could of been viewed a malicious.

Almost anything can be viewed as malicious. There are some people that can be considered malicious if they manage to turn on their computer. We often use the Run and RunOnce keys so I don't worry about those two unless there is something that tells me I should. I also know a bit about how Windows deals with that key so as long as the system is properly protected there isn't much to worry about.
