changing wallpaper at windows boot
Posted on 1998-06-19
i've recently made a program that randomly selects a wallpaper from an assigned directory and makes it the
desktop wallpaper. when i made a shortcut to this program
and put it in the startup folder...windows failed to load,
because it didn't like my program messing with the registry,
while it was trying to load windows. my solution was to pause loading of my program for 2 seconds. my question is...
is there a better solution? will it work for everyone? i'm planning to make this program universally usable for win95 and wanna make it safe for everyone to use. thanks :)
