Hi,

I just want to get the users screen size/resolution as my app starts up. If not at least 1024 x 768 I will advise the user of what they need to do. I suppose its just the correct APIs I need?

Anyone help?

You don't actually need API:

If Screen.Height / Screen.TwipsPerPixelY < 768 Or Screen.Width / Screen.TwipsPerPixelX < 1024 Then
  Msgbox "Insufficient Resolution"
  'Exit
Else
  'Continue
End If
