Hello experts,
We have this small App in vb2013 that has to start running when the pc is turned on and has to stay running.

So how can I make the computer run this App at start-up momento of the pc ?

How can I make i run as a backgrund process and what are the advantages or cons of running as background process ?4

Regards!

What you need is a Windows Service. This is how stuff like and antivirus starts with the computer and runs in the background.

The main disadvantage of a service is that it cannot display a user interface. If you need the service to display information or want the user to configure or interact with the service, you need a separate application.

Also, a service cannot be debugged as easily as a standard application.
