Create user profiles in VB6

P: 3
Dear Reader,
i am from Bhutan...where technology has just made an entry...here we haven't enough resources on computer topics....and i came from sources that for aspirant programmers (of which i am one) can find help here....
my problem is that we have to share one computer(Pentium-III) among 8 persons. Creating 8 user IDs for these many users has been turned down by server management.
To serve the need, I want to develop an application in VB 6.0 where only the exact user's can access. For this I need help reg:
1.disabling Max,Min,Restore Button of the Form.
2.disabling the windows shortcut keys for the above and also Alt+Ctrl+Del keys
3. inactivating the start menu and all other programs so that one can access the computer only on entering correct code.

Your expertise would alleviate my problem.
Please help me....

Hello, bikash607!

I can get you started on a couple of options, I'd have to look up the rest:

(1) Disable Minimize button by setting the form you need not to be minimized, in its properties, to False (MinButton therefore should be false there)

(2) Disable Maximize button by setting the form you need not to be maximized, in its properties, to False (MaxButton therefore should be false there)

Please give me some time to find answers to the rest, or stay tuned until other members here get wind of your inquiry.

In a bit!
