I have an autorun file which calls an exe called setup.exe
i am writing setup.exe in vb6.
This setup.exe has no form and it only calls and displays "main.htm".
I need to set the size of this HTML page in code in VB, i know of the parameters
SW_MINIMIZED, SW_MAXIMIZED, ETC.
This is my current command:
ShellExecute(hWnd, "open", URL, vbNullString, vbNullString, WindowState).
I would like to set the size say of the Main.htm that is being displayed to
Say Height = X and Width = Y.

Also
I have an exit button on this HTML page with javascript :
window.close();
but everytime i press it, it asks confirmation on if it should close

and last Q:
i have an install button on the HTML page which links to
install.exe but i dont want the user to have to select open or save or cancel, like it currently does.
It should just start install.exe

Name your "main.htm" file as "main.hta" instead - this will get rid of all the security warnings.

Put this inside your main.hta file somewhere:-

<script>
  window.resizeTo(410, 360)
</script>
