    Can any one tell me how create a vb file to run msn messenger, or any other program, with the active desktop???? I am only 14 years old, and I have pretty much configured the desktop right, and everything is working fine. How ever, I do not have any vb experience so anyone's help would be greatly apreciated...

    LIVE IN ACTION: http://www.mdsalih.d2g.com/xp/msn/index.htm
    NOTE: (must be logged on to MSN Messenger)

    U can download it from here:

    extract it all on to a web site or a local computer running a web server... point to the index.htm file... done :)

    i posted it in admin forums... wasn't much of a hit... probably cos i stuck it in a thread in which it was completely off topic ;)

    if u want it to work with the active desktop trick that is posted on this site stick it in an iframe... point it to where it is... done :)

    P.S. i'll stick up a link to see it live in action in a min...
    also... any one want to modify/hack it further feel free :)... would like to see what comes up ;)
