4A Launch is the ultimate application launcher for Windows. With 4A
Launch's specially modified 'Open' dialog box, you can browse all your
floppy and hard drives for applications to run. As an added bonus, you
can choose how you want your application launched (either maximized,
normal, or minimized).
Place the files 4ALAUNCH.EXE and 4ALAUNCH.HLP on any floppy disk, hard
disk, or network drive, then place the file THREED.VBX in your
WINDOWS/SYSTEM directory. Access to the file can be accomplished through
Windows, OS/2 or the Windows shell program of your choice.
To ensure proper operation, make sure that the 'Current Directory' or
'Default Directory' setting in the Properties box is set to the directory
that contains 4ALAUNCH.EXE and 4ALAUNCH.HLP.
If you wish to make 4A Launch your Windows Shell, please see your Windows
documentation for instructions on editing the SYSTEM.INI file.
SINCE 4A LAUNCH WAS WRITTEN USING VISUAL BASIC, THE FILE VBRUN300.DLL MUST
BE ACCESSIBLE TO THE WINDOWS SYSTEM. VBRUN300.DLL can be found on
CompuServe, America OnLine, most bbs systems, or directly from 4A Software
(to order from 4A Software, see the file REGLAUN.TXT).
