This package allows the user to configure start-up of an application with the OS. Apart from adding the entry to start-up, this package also supports Enabling or Disabling the Startup entry (as can be configured using Task Manager on Windows).


Instantiate StartupOptions from Clicksrv.StartWithOSSettings. An example piece of code below demonstrates how this package can be used.

    var startup = new StartupOptions("<AppName>", "<PathToExecutable>", "<AnyArgumentsToBeSupplied>", global: false);

StartupOptions is an auto-platform class that creates the required instance underneath based on the execution platform. User can also use specific classes like WindowsStartupOptions to force a particular platform.

An example implementation with usage here.
