Dear All,

I am developing an application in MFC VC++ Version 6.0 for Windows 2000. I start my application as soon as the system logs on, by giving the path of my exe in Run field i.e.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

I want to run my program in safe mode also. But unfortunately my program doesnot starts in the safe mode automatically because Run entry in registy doesnot work in this case.

Please  suggest any way to run my application in safe mode also.

Feel free to ask  any further queries in this regards,

Thanks
Rohit Dhamija

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce

Solution:
The value name can be prefixed with an asterisk to force the program to run even in Safe mode. The data value for a value is a command line.

Problem:
The value is deleted before the command line is run. As a result, if a RunOnce operation fails to run properly, the component that failed will not be asked to run again the next time you start the computer.

The value name can be prefixed with an exclamation point to defer deletion of the value until after the command has been completed.
