I have an application that I replaced the windows shell with so that windows would boot directly into the app instead of loading the desktop. After doing some testing I found that windows doesn't boot directly into the app when the power is cut. It will start and bring you to a blank screen and stay like that, then to do anything I have to invoke the Task Manager. Is there a way to work around this so that when the power returns to the computer windows will boot directly into the app?
To replace the shell I went into RegEdit and changed explorer.exe with the file path and name of my application.
I am running Windows XP Pro.
Any help is appreciated.
