That's not so much a C# question as it is one of Windows file management. Check out this information on AutoRun:


i want solution for making a USB Flash (Removable) Disk to run a file (such as AUTORUN.INF) automatically. this way does not work with USB Flash (Removable) Disk it work with CD-ROM only. i want to make it with USB Flash if you have suggestions

Many Thanks,

Re:How to create autostart of program using C#?

I want that when the computes turn's on program automatically start working.(like the "Skype" or Antivirus).

many thx.

try saving a file AUTORUN.INI, not .INF with the following lines of code:


and after that u can for ex.: change the attribute to the files so they wouldn't be visible, or even add an icon to the usb drive by ading the folowing in AUTORUN.INI

icon=icon.ico   or   icon=ProgramName.exe

this works believe me.

Mark it as solved if it did work ;)
