    Arrow flash animation on boot

    Can anyone help me?

    What i am wanting to do is use either media car or road runner as my front end for my car pc. i have found a place that shows you how to have windows boot directly to the front end instead of into windows.
    what i am wanting to do is have it boot directly into front end but play a
    flash animaiton first. So when you turn on the PC it plays the animation first and then boots to the front end application.

    Does anyone know how to do this or what i am talking about?
    Do i have to have somehow add the flash animation to the front end application or can they be seperate?


    Thanks everyone

    What kind of flash animation would you play?

    Ask the developer (and don't forget to donate) for a feature to run XYZ on startup/resume. The app may already do that.

    What u could to is to experiment with a program called AutoIT..
    Really love it..

    make a executable script with this program and point it the shell in the registry.

    The program can show the flash with internet explorer in full screen mode and play a wave file in stealth mode.. and close it within 10 sec for example.. and then start your frontend.

    Happy scripting =)

    If I read it right, he wants to play animation instead of Window's boot screen.
    If that right, it is IMPOSSIBLE, unless somthing that I don't freaking know of and I want to know how.
