    Question system.ini

    In win 9x u have system.ini in c:\windows\system.ini
    now, with win xp its kinda different there u also have a system.ini
    but on win 9x the first line in system.ini is [boot] under that are all the applications that has to be runned when the comp starts
    on win xp there isnt a [boot] line at all and i cant see any .exe file in the system.ini file of win xp
    Does anyone knows where these *.exe files stand.... because there has to be some command in system.ini on win xp that says to start some app.
    [edit]
    i know this has nothing to do with programming but im using ini files in a app (and for the compatibility i have to know these things)
    [/edit]

    xp sucks that way, it's not like 9x....go into the command prompt and type edit system.ini
    you should be able to see everything, if not, open it with a program you make then do it.
    PHP and XML
    Let's talk about SAX
