Why not just use another key combination ? Launchy uses Alt+Space, SlickRun used some other combo...

that means that it would have to be loaded at all time in processes, wich means it can be terminated at any point not the functionality i need.

Do you know what file is executed to bring up the run window or is it built into the explorer? if i can find the file i can just replace it with my own.

Kind Regards
Devon

Hello devonknows, welcome to Planet Earth. Can you explain what a vb app is?

Sorry, beyond me. Although it is possible to `run` a new instance of Explorer.exe when Windows crashes, so
it's not dependent upon Explorer itself.
Maybe Filemon/RegMon/Procmon will highlight the file/registry call you are looking for; click here
Find all three on the same site

Pamy:
