recommended way to autoStart an app

based on a previous thread, i've been advised that using the system registry
isn't always the best way to store user config details (due to portability
issues). from my understanding, however, registry is usually used to
autoStart an app. is there a better way to go about autoStaring an app,
then?

Hi Dica,
if the application is on your local hard disk, simply move a link into your
Autostart-Folder.

If the Application should autostart from a cd or any other removable device,
look at

installation programme.

I didnīt find a native .net-methode, so you must use a wrapper. Until now, i
havenīt done such a thing, maybee this
