Please post your question to a newsgroup with "Windows" in the description.

Just post it to a different group. If you're posting through Microsoft's
discussion site, there's probably a dropdown on the screen. Pick a group
with "Windows" in the description. This is a .Net Programming group.
You're not likely to get an answer here.
