How do you detect the current setting, and change them to a different setting when your program launches. For instance, the program just fills the screen if the resolution is set to 1024 x 768, but is too large to fit in a screen that is 800 x 600. So, you want to be able the set the screen to 1024 x 768 when program launches, the set it it back after it closes using Windows XP Pro and Borland 6 Enterprise

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

This is not a C++ language question and it off topic here.  A much better place for this would be the WINDOWS PROGRAMMING topic area:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Platforms/Win_Prog/

You should post a comment for the moderator in the CS topic area:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/

and ask them to move your question to the right topic area.  It helps things all around and benefits you by getting Windows Programming experts on your question vs. C++ experts here.

I'm fine with answering this question in either category.

It would be silly to delete perfectly good answers.

I don't care about this too. I want to confess - once I answered C++ question in C# area, and nothing terrible happen (except new EE look which was introduced 4.5 months after this).

Actually that was me.  My answers needed that much help that they introduced a new style around it to make it look better.
