Screen Saver Setting Dialog

I would like to know how to get the settings dialog for the current screen saver to come up. I am programming in Visual C++ 6.0 under Windows 98/95. I can get the screen saver to start, but would like to be able to bring up the settings dialog upon demand. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Mike

I found this at http://www.wischik.com/scr/howtoscr.html

// Code to launch configuration dialog
      char scr[MAX_PATH];
      DWORD res=GetPrivateProfileString("boot","SCRNSAVE.EXE","",scr,MAX_PATH,"system.ini");
      STARTUPINFO si; PROCESS_INFORMATION pi;
      ZeroMemory(&si,sizeof(si)); ZeroMemory(&pi,sizeof(pi));
      si.cb=sizeof(si);
      char c[MAX_PATH]; wsprintf(c,"\"%s\" /c",scr);
      CreateProcess(scr,c,NULL,NULL,FALSE,0,NULL,NULL,&si,&pi);

Thanks. I had most of it. I was using ShellExecute instead of CreateProcess.

Have a great Day,
