By registering your application under the App Paths key, users can start your application from Explorer's Run dialog by entering just the EXE's filename and no path.

Here is an example of how to create an App Paths key for your application:

Root: HKLM; Subkey: "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\YourApplicationName.exe"; ValueType: string; ValueName: ""; ValueData: "{app}\YourApplicationName.exe"; Flags: uninsdeletekey

Replace the two occurrences of YourApplicationName.exe with the name of your application.
