    In the application BPM Studio, there is an option to run it as an "exclusive shell application." Upon choosing this, your computer reboots and when Windows starts, the only application that loads is BPM Studio (and services, of course). It seems to me that this could be done manually for any program. I would think it would be some registry setting, but I'm not sure where.

    If anyone knows how this is done (Windows 2000), that would wonderful. ANY help is greatly apprieciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hiya

    Not sure if this would work, but open your SYSTEM.INI and under 'boot' try this:

    [boot]
    shell=myprog.exe

    Regards

    Dude, system.ini in NT5 is only for 16bit backwards compatibility. Thanks anyways, though.
