First thought is that it's a bit weird to have "a bit of a discussion" outside the thread?
Aliali and I live within a brisk walk of one another and I volunteer at the place this set-up is intended for, I hadn't been paying any attention to this thread prior to our discussion Today.
Well that makes a bit more sense then! :D
So far so good except for one little problem.
Shutting the PC down it complains about SlideShowDealie still running so will need a way round this I suppose.
If the comp is shutting down at set times with task scheduler I suppose another task to close Slideshowdealie before shutdown?
OK, sure. I didn't test that scenarios, so apologies for that.
As a guess it's probably just due to how Windows communicates "I'm shutting down" to applications. I think my "don't accidentally close one of the slave windows" routine is probably blocking it.
I'll see what I can do.
The downside to this setup I suppose is lack of flexibility. I just know the boss will ask me if we can have separate image streams on each monitor. Eg one monitor showing regional attractions, one monitor showing a local photographers pictures, one monitor show centre opening times. Etc etc.
People just love to complicate things.
May just have to say can't be done. :P.
Well, I wrote it to your original specification. No more, no less. ;P
Edit: Program now exits properly when it detects that Windows is shutting down or logging off.
