CreateProcess API for an Access MDE

Hi

I working on an application developed with Access, it is a Kiosk application that runs on startup of the system. Currently I am using WSH in a vbs file to give a delay of 5 secs(to provide time for the access runtimes to load) to startup the application which hides the taskbar and runs in full screen mode. My Problem is my Client does not want the taskbar to be visible even for a few seconds. This happens before the vbs is executed. I have been trying a new method to start up the application using CreateProcess and CreateDesktop API's. But the CreateProcess fails to execute the mde as a process with the error message "%1 is not a valid Win32 application." Is there a soultion or round about way for this I am not allowed to use more than one exe files to starup the application. Thanks in Advance.

Have you tried changing the "Shell" Registry Key located in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" on Windows 2000, to you application?  Taskbar shouldnt display at all.

Have i understood correctly?
