Hi,

I'm trying to restore an application from a minimized state, but when I do this the app shutsdown?!?!?!

The code I use is:

Private Declare Function ShowWindow Lib "user32" (ByVal lhWnd As Long, _
    ByVal nCmdShow As Long) As Long

ShowWindow lhWnd, SW_RESTORE

What am I doing wrong?

I also use SetForegroundWindow and this works fine with this window.

Thanks.
