Run Your VB App on Startup

Do you have an application you need to launch on Windows startup? Typically, you do this by placing an item in the Startup directory. However, you can also do this with a registry entry. Add a new string value using the name of your application. The value is the path to your executable:

 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\_
	Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

A sample entry might look like this:

 MyApp		C:\Program Files\MyApp\MyApp.exe
