Run a VB Application During Start-up


Depending on the version of Windows targeted, there are two different ways to run a VB application during the boot process.

Under Windows 9x systems, place a Shell command in the [Boot] section of the System.ini file, such as:
 
Shell=Myprog.exe

Under Windows NT/2000, enter the same shell command in the Registry, under:
 
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Exercise caution when exercising these options, however, as modifications may prevent Windows from displaying properly.
