need help on programming

Postby newbie » Mon, 20 Oct 2003 9:43 am

I have a rather old software program (say ABC.exe) that runs if the monitor color is set to 256 Colors only.
It does not recognise the high color (16 bit) setting of my monitor (I use windows 98).
In the old days of DOS era, I could avail myself of BATCH file.

Can anybody help me with Visual Basic source code OR OTHER ALTERNATIVE SOLUTIONS to execute the following sequence AUTOMATICALLY:
1. set monitor color to 256 Colors (800 x 600 pixels)
2. run abc.exe
3. (upon exiting from abc.exe) set monitor color to high color 16 bit (800 x 600 pixels).

I am a beginner to Visual Basic

you may send the source codes or other information to my email:

Many thanks
