Emerson and ismail,

This is very cool! I have three more questions, if you have a moment.

1. Are all Windows computers equipped with wscript shell and we can rely on it? Or is this bound to fail some of the time?

2. Instead of putting the shortcut on the desktop, I'd like to put it in the startup folder so it executes when the user boots windows. Is this possible, or is there a better way to do that?

3. Does Fox give us a way to put our apps in the system tray so that they're always running? My app needs to continually run, continually monitor a third-party's database, so I'd rather the client not be able to easily kill it (right-click, Quit is fine).
