  • You will not be able to make a windows store app start with windows.

  • Hi,messun

    This is not possible. Even if you can start it on startup, the app would get suspended in the background anyway. additionally, all metro apps show a splashscreen when started.

  • Thank u Ken Tucker and Anne Jing.

    Actually i am creating an app which uploads files and folders to skydrive in the background. Problem will arise if the user shuts down the computer before upload is complete. Those files will remain without being uploaded until the user opens the app for the next time and triggers upload . So i thought each time user logs into the system the app should check for the files which are pending to be uploaded and if there are any the app should automatically start uploading it in the background....

    Is there anyway to accomplish this???

  • The BackgroundUploader is designed for that sort of scenario.
