Creating App Paths in Windows XP

To create an app path, so you can run an application in Windows Xp from the Run dialog box you need to:

1. Run regedit and go to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths

2. Create a new key with the what ever you want to use as your run command, ie HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\whatever.exe

3. In the key folder that you created, create a new string, call it 'Path' and modify the value to point the specific folder of your executable your running. ie C:\ProgramFiles\whatever

4. Use the default string and modify it's value to point to the executable you want to run.

    not what looking for

    ... Okay first of all, badly explained.. The author of this obviously doesn't mind taking the long way about everything. The "Path" string is optional and works in the same manner as a shortcut with a "Start in" parameter. Also, it's not creating an App Path. P.O.O.R. And of course, not to mention it wasn't what I was looking for. I'll still be more generous than the last guy though.
