Need to force power-down while running
Posted on 1999-06-28
I have an application in which the power supply must be able to be cut at any time (throwing caution to the wind, I know), and at the time of power-on, 98 must come back up with no problems. I have almost accomplished this. I now only have one problem: whenever I power down the computer without first shutting down windows, I loose everything in [Start]/programs/startup (the links are still physically in the directory structure, but for some reason 98 does not read them). Any ideas on how to cure this one would be greatly appreciated.
