Running a program at startup

You need to use the Registry for running a program at startup. You can use the RegistryKey class that's in the System.Win32 namespace. The following code shows how to do this:

RegistryKey rk = Registry.CurrentUser;
RegistryKey StartupPath;
StartupPath = rk.OpenSubKey(@"Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run", true);
if (StartupPath.GetValue("ProjectName") == null)
{
StartupPath.SetValue("ProjectName", Application.ExecutablePath, RegistryValueKind.ExpandString);
}
