    Question System.ini Shell Problems

    Hi,

    I have written a program that i need to load before the windows shell. So in system.ini i changed the shell to my program:

    shell=sec.exe

    this worked fine and my program loaded before the shell. But the shell didnt load thats my problem.

    When my program closes i need the windows shell(explorer.exe) to load. If i try to run explorer.exe from my program then windows explorer loads.

    How do i load the shell when my program closes?

    Thanks

    what are you running before the shell?

    why do you need to do this before explorer opens?
