Hi,

I made this script on Window XP but when I try to run it on Window 98, it just doesnt work...Anyone know why?

$szNewPage = "www.google.com" ;Enter the URL of the HomePage

; Change Internet Home Page
_IESetHomePage($szNewPage)

;Close Internet Explorer
While 1
If ProcessExists ("iexplore.exe") Then
    ProcessClose("iexplore.exe")
Else
ExitLoop
EndIf
Wend


Func _IESetHomePage($szNewPage)
    If RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main", "") Then
        SetError(0)
        Return 0
    ElseIf RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main", "Start Page", "REG_SZ", $szNewPage) Then
        Return 1
    Else
        SetError(-1)
        Return -1
    EndIf
EndFunc

I ran it compiled and when I launched the exe, nothing happened and the homepage did not change.

Your above script works fine on Win98 with Internet Explorer 5. Try changing it to this and see if this changes anything:

$szNewPage = "http://www.google.com/" ;Enter the URL of the HomePage

; Change Internet Home Page
_IESetHomePage($szNewPage)

;Close Internet Explorer
While 1
If ProcessExists ("iexplore.exe") Then
    ProcessClose("iexplore.exe")
Else
ExitLoop
EndIf
Wend


Func _IESetHomePage($szNewPage)
    If RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main", "") Then
        SetError(0)
        Return 0
    ElseIf RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main", "Start Page", "REG_SZ", $szNewPage) Then
        Return 1
    Else
        SetError(-1)
        Return -1
    EndIf
EndFunc
