Uncloseable Window

Hi there, basically, I would like some code that will stop my app from closing. On RM networks, it closes any applications that are not meant to be running when you log off the network and i want my program to keep running.

thanks for your help, Jack.

Here's a snippet that references a largely undocumented API call that let's the caller survive a logoff.  This is one of the tings I do to simulate services on 95.

Yes, I know it's not not VB, but the switch to VB should go pretty easy.

Kernel32=GetModuleHandle("KERNEL32.DLL");
if (Kernel32==NULL)
   {
   PostMsg("Unable to get KERNEL32.DLL");
   DestroyWindow(hWnd);
   return 0;
   }

RegisterServiceProcess=(ExRegSrvProc)GetProcAddress(Kernel32,"RegisterServiceProcess");
if (RegisterServiceProcess==NULL)
   {
   PostMsg("RegisterServiceProcess entry point not found in KERNEL32");
   DestroyWindow(hWnd);
   return 0;
   }
if (1!=RegisterServiceProcess(GetCurrentProcessId(),1))
   {
   PostMsg("Unable to register service");
   DestroyWindow(hWnd);
   return 0;
   }

Here's one link of many to VB samples:
http://www.planet-source-code.com/vb/scripts/ShowCode.asp?txtCodeId=1012&lngWId=-10

Do a search on 'registerserviceprocess 95 vb' to see all of them.  

Note that not only does the process survive a logoff, it doesn't show up in the ctrl-alt-delete task list either.

In your form query unload event

Private Sub Form_QueryUnload(Cancel As Integer, UnloadMode As Integer)
cancel = true
End Sub
