How can I remove the Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 splash screen?

Posted on

QUESTION :

I have an application running on MS-DOS 6.22, which is installed in Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 on a WinVista machine. I would like to eliminate the Virtual PC splash screen that appears when the users boot up the DOS virtual hard disk. I have made as many other changes possible so that the users don’t notice that their app is running on a VPC or DOS 6.22.

EDIT: If the VPC2007 spash screen cannot be prevented from displaying, can I replace it with another splash screen of my choice?

ANSWER :

yes you can remove it ..

download http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/reshack_setup.exe

delete resource [Bitmap : 250 : 1033], now go to file and save.

there you go no splash!
