Launching an app quietly and be the last in line at boot up
Posted on 2011-03-13
I am trying to write a Sleep function that delays the execution of a given app until all other apps at startup have been loaded, and will launch my app without opening the command window or making other obvious "noise".
I think I could do this in VB 6.0. with a Loop While and a DoEvents() in between. If I gave it 2 minutes, you'd think that would be adequate time to allow the other apps in my system to load / launch.
I am not sure if VB would be entirely quiet (it might display an icon), which I would like to stay away from. In addition, I am curious to know whether there might be a quicker way to do this.
Do I have access to the Timer functions if I were to do it in VBScript?
Any ideas, Experts?
