I am submitting this question again as the link to microsoft didn't answer my question. I am offering some serious points this time so please don't link me this time. I would like some sample code if this is possible.
Here is the question:
Why do some systems write to the registry and act on this immediately,
while others have to be rebooted ? I have a windows95 system and a windows98
system. When i write to the registry expecting a result with the 95 it is immediate in writing and then does what it is supposed to instantly, but i have to reboot to get the same results with the 98. It will write to the registry in 98 immediately but won't act on this until rebooted. Is this the system itself or the windows version ?
If there is a way to make the 98 system act as the 95 by forcing something like a refresh or whatever then i am would appreciate knowing how using visual basic 5.0
