My work laptop is becoming almost unbearable lately. After logon the
wallpaper appears immediately but the Taskbar and Desktop icons take
fully three minutes before they even appear! Add another two or more
minutes for the disk activity to slow down and it can take me at least
five minutes after logon to be able to open any application.
During this time the disk activity LED is essentially solid on, so
something is happening in the background. After everything stops the
laptop acts normally and is not slow during use. There is one
application, FreeCommander, that once launched ta...MFC to launch MsDev
I am running MsDev 7.1
I would like to from a MFC project use automation to launch MsDev
then load a text file etc...
The problem is that when I use the 'Add Class' and select 'MFC Class
from Typelib' and then choose 'Microsoft Development Environment 7.0'
type library I cannot determine what interface to generate the class
for. There is no _Application interface or similar like there is for
each of the Office applications.
MSDN documentation regarding MsDev automation has not been updated
(shame!), and I am at a loss.
...double launch at IE launch from quick launch
When I launch Internet Explorer I sometimes get a double launch. Most of the
time I launch from the quick start bar. It happens also from the standard
desktop icon also. ???
If you're looking for help here, the first piece of information we need
is what version of Internet Explorer you are using and what version of
Windows you are using (including the service pack number.)
Next, keeping in mind that we are totally relying on your description,
you need to explain exactly what a "double launch" means and why it

Thanks in advance
I have no idea what a "dos-like command" is. What is wrong with ShellExecute? (Note: if
you are trying to launch a command shell, ShellExecute is a good way to launch it, as well
as CreateProcess, which is what ShellExecute uses, and is, oh dear, another Win32 API. Oh
yes, ShellExecute always does the RIGHT thing, by launching the user's selected browser).

Is there a way to make CRM open a new window when launched?
Isn't this a setting under your Internet Explorer --> Tools --> Pop Up
Blocker Settings --> Allow CRM as a pop up site
There is also a setting that allows you to open a new window when
following a link. Those two should do the trick.
