^BQuickStart for Windows
By Brian Bernacki
Version 1.00B

NOTE: This program requiresVBRUN100.DLL to run.

This program was written in Visual Basic for Windows. If you believe Visual Basic programs can't be useful, I think this program could change your mind. I found this utility to be incredibly easy and efficient to use.
This program allows you to easily start any Windows or DOS program with a few clicks within any program. You could be in File Manager and start a calculator or your favorite spreadsheet with just four clicks. This is just one example of the flexibility and power this utility has to offer.

Using you favorite text editor or SysEdit that came with Windows you will have to modify the Load= command line in your SYSTEM.INI. To do this go to the end of the Load= line and type C:\WINDOWS\QSTART.EXE. Now just save this file and reload Windows to load QuickStart into memory. Since this program was written in Visual Basic you will need the Visual Basic run-time module. This is a free file named VBRUN100.DLL that can be obtained with Visual Basic or a local bulletin board. The end of this document has a BBS number that has the needed file and many other great public domain and shareware files for downloading.

Using this program is quite easy as you will find after using it for the first time. To activate the program when it is loaded on the bottom of the screen just double click the icon. The QuickStart screen will then be displayed on the screen. To activate a program on the QuickStart list just double click on the name. To add a file to the list simply click on the button labeled Add a QuickStart. Another window will appear and in this window you can enter the program to add file name and the QuickStart label for that file. When done editing the current program label click the OK button this will save the current data you have just entered you can now add another name by entering the new data in the same manner described above then clicking the OK button again. When you have finished adding all the programs you like to have just click the RETURN button. In the release of version 1.00B there is no program editor to edit or delete programs in the QuickStart list. This is easy to get around using the NOTEPAD.EXE program that came with Windows. Just make a program labeled QuickStart Editor and have it run NOTEPAD.EXE C:\WINDOWS\QSTART.LST. When this is ran it will load notepad with the text-based setup file for QuickStart already loaded.

I do not take any responsibility for damage or lose of data due to the use of this software. This software has been tested and found to be completely safe and bug-free on all Intel based computers. Regardless use this software at your own risk.
