In XP execute the calculator (hide)

but in windows vista show the window's calculator.



I tried in Windows Vista as administrator, but I get the same result.



Please, help me.







Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias _

"ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation _

As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters _

As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal _

nShowCmd As Long) As Long



Private Sub Form_Load()

ShellExecute hwnd, "open", "C:\windows\system32\calc.exe", vbNullString, vbNullString, vbhide

End Sub

I've replied to your other topic in the main VB forum. Wink

I've been programming with VB for 17 years. Started with VB4 16bit Pro, VB5 Pro, VB6 Pro/Enterprise and now VB3 Pro. But I'm no expert, I'm still learning.

Welcome to A1vbcode simrita

The next code works in XP but not in Windows Vista:

Shell "c:\windows\system32\calc.exe", vbHide

In XP execute the calculator (hide)
but in windows vista show the window's calculator.

Private Sub Form_Load()
ShellExecute hwnd, "open", "C:\windows\system32\calc.exe", vbNullString, vbNullString, vbhide
End Sub

You don't need to full path to Calc.exe because its in the Windows path.

Shell "calc.exe", vbHide

According to this. You can not hide the calculator in either XP or Vista with Shell or ShellExecute. Wink
