Splash Screen and Windows Start up

Kam
Hi,

I've got an application that starts whenever the machines starts but it
hangs on the splash screen until the underlying applications is ready to go
and then it starts to load.

Is there any way (in C# code) to stop this application from running until
Windows has finished loading?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Kamal

Well, that is the intended use of a splash screen, to have an interface
while the app is loading.

Dont' quite understand yuo, do you want to change the app? or just
configure the OS to start this application later on the startup

I want to change the application to wait for all the processes to load and
then load itself.

Thanks.

Hi,

AFAIK you cannot know for sure when that moment is, when the system
"finish" to load , your best bet may be adding an entry to the startup
folder, this is the last place where windows looks for programs to run.

Maybe you get a better answer in some of the WinXP groups.
cheers,
