  • Full DOS Window from the program

    The program runs in a DOS Window just fine.
    I know how to access Properties and click on Full Screen
    I know how to use an icon that runs the program in Full Screen
    and Closes when done.
    However, I'm doing the above manually at least the first time.

    My Question:
    Assume the program resides on a CD in D:
    Click on Start
    Click on Run
    Type 'D rogram name'
    Click on Ok

    I want the program to run in Full Screen without any
    further activity on my part. Also, the Full Screen
    should Close without any activity on my part.

    Have not the least idea what I should use for Basic code
    or code in a batch file to solve the problem.

    I'm using PB Compiler for DOS, Ver 3.5 and Windows 98

    Thanks for any help or suggestions.

    Distribute a .PIF file with your program.
    Change the properties for your program to full
    screen and close on exit. If the program is
    started by GO.BAT then distribute GO.PIF with it.

    The world is full of apathy, but who cares?
