Running Delphi16 application on Windows95.

If I call ShowMessage('Hello') and then click MainForm icon on Windows95 taskbar, "Hello" box goes behind MainForm.
Same happens with all the forms shown modally.

Any ways around it ?

Alexk - this is a known problem when you run Delphi 16 bit under Windows 95. Infact when you develop an application using Delphi 16 bit and open up more than one form when the application runs, you will see as many icons/buttons on the task bar of Windows 95.
