Hi
 
    I have an exe.  The startup object is a module. I load a login form from the module.
If I click the shortcut I could see the login screen.  If I click several times
I get so many screens.

How can I avoid this.

Thanx

In the Main() function, check the App.PrevInstance value. If the application is already started, then you can "abort" the startup

Public Sub Main()
if App.PrevInstance then
else
  <.. do you normal code here ..>
end if
End Sub
