I want to recognize the windows shutdown with VB4.0. The Form_Unload does not work because
my programm has a loop in the Form_Load! So I need to recognize the windows-shutdown from somewhere else.
API?
OR: if you know how to palce my loop out of the Form_Load so that it is also startet immediately when running.

The only thing to do is adding a DoEvents in your loop in Form_Load

Sub Form_Load
  Do while True
     ...
     DoEvents
     ...
  Loop
End Sub

Sub Form_UnLoad
  ' *** Quit
End Sub
