Hallo Experts,

I need to append an option to windows boot menu. If user selects that option, the windows will first run my exe at the startup. Otherwise it will boot normally.

1. Windows normal boot menu
2. Booting with my exe at startup.

I need this in Windows XP & Windows 7 both.
How is it possible? Kindly help.

Regards,
Soumen

You mean you want the option to run your exe to get offered every time windows starts?
(because I assume your exe does not actually contain its own bootable kernel.)

How about if the current user logs off and another user logs on, without actually rebooting... do you want it offered then, too?

Yes my exe dont contain bootable kernel. If user log off and another user log on then also i need the xtra menu.

I want it not everytime, but if only user choose a button from my exe, after that i need that menu with a prompt

Press enter to normal windows
Press f7 to boot with application process

You would likely want it in the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
