    Can't be done on Windows Phone due to security reasons.Though for WP8 following is possible if it suits your needs:

    Maybe we can find a workarround to your issue if you explain what you are planning to do when the phone boot.
    (Ex. using Background Agents)

    No. The user must explicitly invoke your app. There is no way to automatically launch an app during an system event without the user doing it.

    It is probably safe to say that autostarting just because the application has been installed is not possible.
    Handling a special kind of file or URI scheme may be a little bit closer, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...v=vs.105).aspx, but it may still require user interaction. Also, it is for WP8.
    As an end-user I remember first time clicking on a .pdf link in IE on WP7 resulted in installing Adobe Reader and launching it with the given file. However that case may have been a special one, and thus count as not-entirely-3rd-party application.

    Re: Auto start app

    As Wizard said its not possible to auto.start an app. WP7 and WP8 does not support that scenario.

    On Windows Phone the user must take the action by his/her choice. The same applies on adding the Tile to home screen for example.

    The user has full control. So you need to understand that when creating your apps.

    There may be a work-around if you are an manufacturer, you may be able to do some things that as a normal developer you cant, but even so I doubt that that includes launching apps without user intervention.
