Can I register an application name for restart from another application?

Hi All,

I am working in WINDOWS 7 OS.

I want to resgister an application name for restart from another application. Is it possible?

For example:

I am running xyz.exe which is calling "RegisterApplicationRestart()". I want to know that, can I register the name of another application, say abc.exe, for restart from xyz.exe ?

Detail description of problem :

Actually, I am having 2 binaries, say abc.exe and xyz.exe.

abc.exe does all the environment settings and then invoke xyz.exe and exits.

Note: xyz.exe cannot be invoked directly without environment settings.

I want to make it restart aware. But since abc.exe exits and if I make xyz.exe restart aware, how can I make sure that restart manager should invoke abc.exe after the system gets restarted by some intallation/updates ?

Response awaited.....

Thanks

The "restart manager" feature is common for both the OS (Windows7 and Vista).
So, even people who are working on Vista and having good knowledge of Windows Vista can answer my question.

I am making my application RESTART aware for both Windows7 and Vista.

Thanks
